The Colour of Feast Day

I am told that Orange is the new pink. As I have no pink clothing (More likely Rose, I suppose, as I am a manly-man...) it was not that surprising to me that I had no Orange.

As a young man with little actual knowledge of my heritage, I vocally protested that my Protestant status would dictate Orange as more appropriate than Green as my colour for today. My Oldest friend has had several great postings related to our mutual Scotch-Irish heritage as well as consumables o' the Emerald Isle.

I suppose my adopted small-c catholic faith makes my 'warin O the Green appropriate.

So whatever your colour of choice, Happy Feast of St. Patrick, history's first documented Scots-Irishman!
