Hopefully everyone is getting to celebrate today or got to over the weekend by drinking your green beer, telling fantastic Irish jokes, and eating Jigg's dinner (why do we only eat this delicious dinner one time a year?).
Did you wear green today? Green has become the official color of St. Patrick's Day and of Ireland, but that wasn't always so according to what I read on Wikipedia today. The report is, since Shamrocks and green ribbons were worn in celebration of St. Patrick, it just became an unofficial tradition to wear green, but different hues of blue are associated with the order of St. Patrick. Follow this link to read about the coat of arms and view a very interesting blue color chart displaying familiar colors such as Tiffany Blue, Cornflower Blue, and Iris, but also featuring exotics like International Klein Blue, Ultramarine, and Bondi Blue.
