So... this is the top that I wore to work today and as you can see there is no green to be found anywhere on it.
I made sure and asked the people around me at work on Monday if we were expected to wear green on St. Patrick's Day and I was given a confident 'no'. When asked why it is not a big deal here I was told 'Because we are English... not Irish'.
This made me laugh.
In the United States St. Patrick's Day is a pretty big holiday for whatever reason. People expect you to wear green and if not you run the risk of being pinched.
Well Andy always flat out refused to wear green on this day and pretty much dared people to try to pinch him. When I or anybody else would ask why he did not want to wear green he would answer 'Because I am English... not Irish'.
