Were you one of those kids that always wore the smallest, most insignificant amount of green that you could on St. Patrick’s Day? For some reason, that was me. I’d wear green nail polish on one finger, or green underwear, or a green necklace hidden in my shirt. I loved fooling people into pinching me on St. Patrick’s Day. You got to pinch anyone who pinched you! Talk about payback. As an adult, I kind of hold on to this tradition. Not to pinch people, but I still avoid my green shirts and dresses and opt for a more subtle but still festive approach to avoid the dreaded pinch. Here are some great ways to avoid the pinching and still celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
