Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Does the Dollar Store still has green things for St. Patrick's Day?  I noticed last year and this year there is a lot of hats and head bands that bring out the silliness of celebrating green.  

The  shade of green that represents St. Patrick's Day is 'spring green'.  The actual saint, St. Patrick, was represented by the colour blue.  Green became the official colour of Ireland, so St. Patrick's Day followed.  The official colour is Pantone's green PMS 347.  Green is the largest of the colour families and has the most varieties that are discernible to the human eye.

Here are some of St. Patrick's Day jokes:

What do you get when you cross poison ivy with a four-leaf clover?
A rash of good luck

What do you get when you do the Irish jig at McDonalds?
A Shamrock Shake

Why can't you borrow money from a leprechaun?
Because they're always a little short

Why don't you iron 4-Leaf clovers?
Because you don't want to press your luck

I went out drinking on St Patricks Day, so I took a bus home...
That may not be a big deal to you, but I've never driven a bus before
