The only celebrating I really do for St. Patty's Day is, my band usually plays down on River St. in Savannah. That's always a blast!

Many years ago, my in-law's would host a huge St. Paddy's day party on the closest Saturday to the holiday. They would invite everyone they knew and it was quite a sight seeing 50+ people cram into their small house for a few hours. Unfortunately I only participated in three of them before my MIL suddenly passed and the tradition went with it.

My wife has talked for over 10 years about re-starting it at our house. However, March is my busiest time of the year at work plus most of our friends have young kids (including us) so the thought of having two dozen of them running around our house sounds kind of hectic. Her parents waited until their kids were teens before starting so I think we will too.

I make corned beef and cabbage along with potatoes, and carrots.

For St.Patricks Day breakfast, I make green pancakes for my daughter, and she wears green so that she doesn't get pinched at school.

I always make corned beef but I don't like cabbage so I don't make it.

Is green a type of protective colour to stop other children pinching her? Maybe if I wear green moskitos would no longer bit (pinch) me.
Here is what I found-

Pinching those not wearing green on St. Patrick's Day is an American tradition, having really nothing to do with Ireland or St. Patrick. It's thought that the pinching started in the early 1700s, about the time that awareness of St. Patrick's as a holiday came to the fore, too, in Boston, in the Massachusetts colony. They thought if you wore green, it made you invisible to the Leprechauns, which was good because they would pinch anyone they could see. So the pinching is to warn and remind you about the Leprechauns.

Thank you made582. And as for the green pancakes, I just add a drop of food coloring into the pancake batter so that it turns brown. Just a fun thing that my daughter looks forward to each St.Patricks day.

Oops, I don't think we have anything green for the baby to wear. Well, no one around here would pinch her!
