Happy St.Patrick's Day!
Since you guys already know what the topic is about, I figured I'd start off my wishing you all first.

A little about the day;
(you can skip this part if you already know about St.Pat's Day..or if you just want to get to the good part)

It is celebrated in the honour of Saint Patrick, the most commonly known patron saint of Ireland. This holiday, though initially celebrated only in Ireland, is known and celebrated all over the world.

Saint Patrick was sold as a slave at the age of 16. He escaped from slavery after six years and went to Gaul where he studied monastery. He then returned to Ireland where he was appointed as second bishop to Ireland (after the transferring of St.Palladius to Scotland). St.Patrick died on March 17th in AD 461.

A traditional icon of this day is the shamrock. This roots from the Irish tale that tells how Saint Patrick used the three-leafed plant to explain the Trinity. The custom of wearing a shamrock originated from this very tale.

Big smile

Now that the history lesson is done with, let's move onto the good part, shall we?

Did you know..
One aspect of this very special day is that people have to wear green. Green shirts, green shoes, green pants(Cool), GREEN ANYTHING. JUST WEAR GREEN! Because if you don't, you shall endure the pain of getting pinched. Trust me when I say this..getting pinched by almost everyone in class is definitely NOT something you want to get yourself into.Ouch
^^ don't ask me where this tradition came from, I have no idea.Big smile

since we are all currently in a virtual world where we cannot see what everyone is wearing, the
crazy creatives came up with the brilliant idea of making everyone decorate their avis and sig boxes with the, guessed it, GREEN! (the sig/avi doesn't have to be completely green, anything that has a TAD bit of green will work as wellBig smile).


Basically..if you don't see someone who doesn't have any green in either their avi or sig, quote the person and tell him/her that he/she has just been pinched by you for not "wearing" green.

simple no?Big smile
