    Wearing green is strictly a U.S. custom, as the color green is not popular in Ireland. Green is connected to the old green flag and a time when Ireland was not free. Green is also a color connected with hope and nature.

    Green if you want, but if you are Irish or have Irish heritage green is unlucky!!!

    Green eggs and ham come to mind: green deviled eggs, mini ham sliders on Hawaiian rolls that have been colored green. Split pea and ham soup Corned beef and cabbage rollups Spinach flavored tortilla wraps filled with turkey, cheese, lettuce etc. Spanakopita Lettuce wraps filled with chicken salad

    While in the here in the U.S., not wearing green on March 17 is likely to get you pinched; in Ireland, wearing green is likely to get you kidnapped by a faery, according to Irish lore. The color is considered unlucky in the country and folklore holds that it's the favorite color of the faeries, according to the Irish Culture and Customs Web site by Bridget Haggerty. The faeries are likely to steal anyone, especially children, who wear too much of the color.

    Nope. I'm Irish and we don't really do that whole "Must wear green thing" over here.
