I don't know how the idea of wearing green for March 17th's Saint Patrick's Day got started nor why it is held on this date.
Also would like to know how pinching for lack of wearing green became an idea. It doesn't make any sense to me. Please help me understand it better.

I'm not sure because there's no Saint Patrick's Day where I live. What I do know is that he was a Christian missionary who played a great role in the conversion of Ireland to Christianity during the 5th century. I've seen many times Ireland being associated with the green color. Maybe this is why.0
