1. Do you eat corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick's Day?

2. Do you watch or are you and/or your children in a St. Patrick's Day parade?

3. Will you be wearing green?

Nope

3. Will you be wearing green?

Yes. I have a really great bright green sweater to wear this year.

1. Do you eat corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick's Day? We eat corned beef and cabbage (with potatoes) sometime in the month of March. Not always on the 17th. This year we will.

2. Do you watch or are you and/or your children in a St. Patrick's Day parade? No to all of the above.

3. Will you be wearing green? If I think about it. Dylan wore green today as B track celebrated St. Patrick's day today as tomorrow is an at home day. A track will celebrate tomorrow as they are in the classroom on Wednesdays.

"Green wouldn't be appropriate."

For what?

For a non-Catholic.

Edited to add, since I realize the brevity of my response leaves the question open, my answer above is applicable ONLY to me. Not to anyone else, not even my kid. This is a personal thing of mine and I don't expect anyone else to adhere to it or even pay it that much mind. TO ME, the whole green/St. Patrick's day thing ties way too much into the political issues in Northern Ireland. I'm not Catholic and while my family *is* Irish (among other ethnicities), I don't really identify as anything other than American, so the cultural aspect of the holiday is, at best, meh for me. I don't really care one way or the other on the political question, although if pressed, I'm not that sympathetic to the cause of the Catholics in Northern Ireland, which probably isn't very politically correct. So the whole wearing of the green thing seems incredibly hypocritical on MY part. Hence, it's not appropriate. But I only explain this when asked. Otherwise, I don't really think anyone cares (nor should they).
