Happy St. Patrick’s Day, folks! Remember to wear green and not get pinched! Here is your St. Patty’s fun fact:

According to Irish myth, leprechauns love pinching people to mess with them, but wearing green makes you invincible from them! That’s why if you don’t wear green on St. Patrick’s day, you get pinched!

That’s actually a really fun myth. But why is it only on the one day? Maybe leprechauns are just really active on March 17th. What if it’s like their one collective birthday?
