Meaning, top of the morning! According to Irish folklore, green is unlucky; children wearing green are likely to be stolen by faeries. St. Patrick’s Day parades began in Ireland just 75 years ago, but in the U.S. they’re more than 200 years old. Pubs in Ireland don’t serve green beer and were not even open on St. Patrick’s Day until the late 1970s. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
