Green comes to town

Green cupcakes (2)Green is the buzz word during this special time of year.  Do you do green in March?

Green just happens to be my favorite color but what is significant with it?

According to Color-Meanings the color green symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. “Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety. Dark green is also commonly associated with money. Green has great healing power. It is the most restful color for the human eye; it can improve vision”.

Many analysts mention the color green is one of the most encouraging and uplifting colors, giving hope more than any other color.

Do you have a preferred shade of green?

So, is there any wonder the color emphasis this weekend is green – specifically referencing the St. Patrick’s Day emphasis?

I know practically anywhere you travel in the U.S.A on March 17 you will have your fill of green.  Just embrace it.

According to CNN the green shamrock is a “symbol of Ireland — known as the Emerald Isle because of its lush vegetation. And traditional Irish legend held that wearing green made you invisible to leprechauns. Regardless of the reason, the world unites around the color green on StPatrick’s Day.”

Well, what about some of the origin?  If you check out Wikipedia you’ll  learn that green is associated with Ireland from the 1640s when the green harp flag was used by the Irish Catholic Confederation.  “Green ribbons and shamrocks have been work on St. Patrick’s Day since at least the 1680s.”

So let’s get on the bandwagon and celebrate – although we should do it responsibly.  There are already too many people dying on our roadways.  Please don’t let this happen to you, a loved one or a friend.

If you travel in the southeastern part of the U.S. – particularly near Savannah, Georgia, you may want to check out their events for St. Patrick’s Day – packed with parties, special events and a parade.  You may want to wear at least “something” green.  Activities may be viewed at

Savannah’s parade information may be viewed at  Oh, by the way, in case you want to follow tradition and “kiss” a military person in uniform the local authorities say stop.  I wonder how many will adhere to this latest green shamrocks

Now I’m curious.

Do other countries, aside from Ireland, celebrate St. Patrick’s Day like we do in the U.S.A.?

Will you go green also?  I will.

I don’t want a Leprechaun to sneak up from behind and pinch me.

  1. Go green! My brother, Alex’s, favorite color is green, too! I love how revitalizing it is. I’m bummed to confess that I truly do not have a favorite color! There are so many beautiful shades to choose from! I can say I like lighter, softer shades of all colors and only get into the darker, more dramatic and deeper shades when necessary, which isn’t often. Neat post! 💚

    1. That’s so thoughtful of you to read the posts and comment. I’m impressed. I still don’t do as well – reading and commenting. Yes, I do like mostly all the lighter shades. I like blue too but for some reason I began to think more about the colors and decided on green. I see green in much of the world around me – especially living in Florida. BTW, I saw on the news about grasshoppers in Vegas. Maybe they are looking for green grass. 😁

      1. Haha, yeah, the grasshopper apocalypse! They love the lights! 🙂 If it’s grass they want, they need to head east! 😸 Sebbie and Daisy have caught a few! And two came into the house. Just catch and release….

  2. Rome doesn’t have much in common with all this, but there’s a famous Irish Pub in town where a lot of drinking and celebrating went on yesterday 🙂 My favourite online were the green canals in Chicago!

    1. Thanks Bea for the comment. That’s what I was wondering – how much the emphasis was an influence around the world. I think it’s amazing how the waterways are colored. It must take a lot of food coloring! 🙂

  3. Yes, I do have a preferred shade of green: sage green all the way. I don’t like most greens, in fact. My favorite color is blue, but sage green is right there. And now I want cupcakes!!!

    1. I keep debating within whether I like the darker green or the lighter green. I do like the sage green also. I actually bought two more green shirts today Of course I like blue as well – more of the teal shade. Yep, the cupcakes were quite tasty.
