The St. Patrick’s Day Rules

I read this morning in an article something completely new to me. Apparently, if someone pinches you and you are wearing green, you have the right to pinch them back 10 times. All these years I have been mis-pinched and had no idea! I won’t make the same mistake this year.

3rd Power is a great atmosphere and I can wear whatever I like. I could come in dressed as Hulk Hogan if I wanted. Some companies aren’t as flexible, so you may have to throw on a green tie, some green cuff links, or rock out some other neat green accessories. Whatever you do, make sure you have on your green so you don’t have pinched. The great thing about this holiday is you are free to go as subtle or as wild as you like.

For those of you curious about the pinching tradition:
“One tradition is 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). If you wore green it made you invisible to the Leprechauns – else they were out to pinch anyone they could see. So the pinching was to warn you about the Leprechauns.”
