the wearing of the green
(Vocus) March 17, 2009
Nashville, TN -- St. Patrick's Day celebrations run the gamut of activities including parades, eating Irish foods and drinking Irish beers, dressing like leprechauns and wearing green. In fact, green is the color most associated with Ireland and St. Patrick's Day in recent history. Anthropologists credit this green trend with the saying and practice of "the wearing of the green," meaning to wear a shamrock pinned onto one's clothing.
With this in mind, Magazines.com will go green this St. Patrick's Day by offering green magazine subscriptions at significant discounts off cover prices.
Green magazines include magazines that champion eco-friendly living like Natural Home, Mother Earth News, E: The Environmental Magazine, Fast Company, Green Source, Dwell, Natural Solutions, Organic Gardening and Organic Spa.
St. Patrick, a patron saint of Ireland, is believed to have started the practice of wearing a shamrock pinned to one's clothing. St. Patrick used the shamrock, a three-leaved plant, to explain the Christian Holy Trinity. Throughout Irish history wearing the shamrock was considered a symbol of Irish nationalism or loyalty to the Roman Catholic faith.
