Of course lots of authentic Irish Pubs are having their own celebrations and deals going on so be sure to check them out! Also lots of smaller cities, aside from Orlando are going to have their own parade and also have some fun 5k runs! And all throughout the weekend there's going to be lots of concerts and performances so don't forget to see if your favorite band is playing! Some of these events, like the concerts, you do have to pay to enter, but there's a lot that are free and who doesn't like free events?!
I know I gave you all a reminder to wear green so as not to get pinched, but has it ever occurred to you why do we even get pinched? I personally have always wondered what's the story behind not wearing green and getting pinched. And luckily (pun intended) I found the answer to my question. The reason why we get pinched is due to leprechauns and fairy creatures. See, they'd pinch anyone they saw (those not wearing green) because if you did wear green, you'd be invisible to them. So people would pinch those not wearing green as a reminder that leprechauns could sneak up and do the same. Just a little fun fact for you all.
So once again, don't forget to wear green!
Till Next Time,
