Why Do We Wear Green?
We all know the rule of March 17: wear green or risk getting pinched. (Maybe you’re into that, we’re not judging.) But do you know why we wear green on St Patrick’s Day? The habit started back in Ye Olde Ireland, when shamrocks and kelly green ribbons marked the celebration of the patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick. Immigrants carried the tradition of Saint Patrick to the United States, along with the tale that wearing green makes you invisible to little leprechauns. If you are wearing green, the spry woodland creatures cannot see you and therefore cannot pinch you. But skip the green, and they will sneak up and pinch you! (This makes more sense after a few pints of Guinness, we assume.)
How to Wear Green: With Mighty Skins!

Saint Patrick, Love, and Leap Year
So wait, what is this about Saint Patrick and getting married? Turns out old Saint Patrick was an equal opportunity romantic. An Irish nun named Saint Bridget had lamented to Saint Patrick that the lovely Irish lasses were having to wait far too long for their loves to propose. So Saint Patrick decreed that the tables would turn every Leap Year, and women could propose to their suitors. This year is a Leap Year, so now is your chance to celebrate this little-known tradition. And ladies, while MightySkins does not carry a line of wedding rings, may we suggest that any of our custom skins and wraps would make for a fine engagement gift?
