White and Green

shamrockWhite should be just as acceptable of a color to wear on St. Patrick’s Day as green is.

The Irish flag contains three colors: green, representing Catholicism and the Gaelic people, orange, representing Protestantism, and white, the color that lies in between green and orange to symbolize the union between the two religions of Ireland.

This representation throughout the flag signifies unity and acceptance. Since St. Patrick’s Day is a celebration of a man who brought so much to the world in kindness and religious purposes, a color of unity should be an acceptable color to wear for the day that celebrates such a great man.

Whether it is the traditional green staple you wear on St. Patrick’s Day or the white color of unity, just remember that St. Patrick’s Day is a day to celebrate religious purposes, and not just a day to pinch people who don’t wear green and drink enormous amounts of alcohol into the wee hours of the night.
