Why Do We Wear Green on St. Patrick’s Day?

The History of Wearing Green on St. Paddy’s Day

Oddly enough, it is said that blue was actually the old green of St. Paddy’s Day. Sometime in the 17th century, the shift towards green started to happen. Green makes a lot of sense being that it’s one off the colors in the Irish flag. However, there were political, religious and some very interesting leprechaun tales that led to everyone wearing green. Apparently, wearing green makes you invisible to leprechauns. Why, you might be wondering, is it important to be invisible to leprechauns? Well, they’ll pinch you if they find you, of course.

Clearly, wearing green of St. Patrick’s Day is a smart play. We’ve pulled together some inspiration of some of our favorite green t-shirts as well as St. Patrick’s Day designs. Check out our St. Patrick’s Day t-shirts for more ideas and inspiration.
