Orange Up

St. Patrick's Day is upon us and we'll see hordes of people donning green from head to toe, gone so far to dye their hair and some of their food, and drink to celebrate one of the most misunderstood holidays there is.

Wearing green on St. Patrick's Day celebrates one's Irish heritage and one's Catholic heritage. Wearing orange is said to celebrate one's Irish heritage as well, but from a Protestant slant.

If you are a visual person, you just painted a picture of the Irish flag. Only missing is the white between the two colors, which represents the aspiring peace between the two religious divisions.

What to wear to celebrate St. Patrick's Day:

  • If you are proud of your Irish Catholic heritage – wear green.
  • If you are proud of your Irish Protestant heritage – wear orange.
  • If you want to fit in with 93% of America that day – wear green and don't be able to explain why.

Pedal harder.
