What Do You Wish Someone on St. Patrick’s Day? 

You could greet someone by simply saying Happy St Patrick’s Day. You can also choose to wish someone traditionally by saying ‘Beannachtai na Féile Pádraig dhuit!”, which means that you’re bestowing blessings onto the person that you are wishing. 

What Does Wearing Green on St. Patrick’s Day Mean? 

There are two beliefs. The first is that wearing green on St Patrick’s Day originated in the U.S when several Irish immigrants arrived in the country to build a better life. Wearing green was particularly prevalent during the great famine when Irish immigrants began to wear the color whilst waving the Irish flag. And then there’s the traditional belief that if you don’t wear green on St Patrick’s Day, a fairy or leprechaun might pinch you.
