If we don't wear green, it's considered shameful and we get Pinched. In addition to that, people often wear green on St. Patrick's Day to make themselves invisible to mischievous leprechauns. ... Anyone who practices the pinching tradition and pinches others who aren't wearing green can be compared to the leprechauns.
