Do The Irish Wear Green on Saint Patrick’s Day? Think Again!

 Corned beef and cabbage, Irish stew, Shepard’s pie, Colcannon, just to name a few of the upcoming traditional Irish recipes to be posted here in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. However, the question today is “do the Irish wear green on St. Patrick’s Day?”

Many people wear something green on St Patrick’s Day which is known in the U.S. and other countries as “wearing of the green.” Usually people wear green for good luck and to show their Irish heritage & culture on the day that “Everyone’s Irish” but in Ireland the wearing of the green doesn’t really exist, well in terms of celebrating their culture. However, they do pin a small bunch of Shamrocks to the breasts of their outer coats to symbolize the teaching of the holy trinity by St Patrick.  As the Irish expression goes, “Erin go Bragh!” Ireland Forever!
