I know when I was growing up, if I wasn't wearing green on St. Patty's Day, I would get pinched, poked, wet-willied, or any number of horrid things. (Thanks, big bro!). The holiday started way back in the 1700's and the lore goes that St. Patrick's revelers thought wearing green made one invisible to leprechauns, fairy creatures who would pinch anyone they could see. While I've never seen a leprechaun, anyone who went to a Catholic grade school knows that the pinching was real!
