St. Patrick’s Day has got to be my favorite holiday.
And not because I’m Irish. Or that I particularly swoon over Irish food. Or Irish culture (though I do, believe me). It’s mainly because St. Patty’s Day gives me a socially-acceptable excuse to overindulge in wearing green.
Actually it’s the only holiday that requires you to wear green. If only out of fear of being pinched. Or for a discount on your green beer. But why on earth wouldn’t you want to wear green regardless?
Green is my absolute favorite color. I wear it and obsess over wearing it often. And in the gray March month, I crave green with a ridiculous obsession. So St. Patrick’s Day always feels like such a wonderful kick-start to the spring season. A kick-start to the greenery that’ll come as summer approaches.
So I don’t ever just wear green. I almost always wear green-on-green (proof from 2015). Because when it comes to green, more is always better as far as I’m concerned. Especially for St. Patrick’s Day!
