Wearin green on Saint Patrick's day was started by American's that didn't know the real meaning of the day. They thought since it was an Irish holiday and Ireland is the Emerald Isle, that green just fit with the day. The color green has absolutely nothing to do with Saint Patricks day.

Green is the colour of the shamrock, the national symbol of Ireland. Also, it is said that Saint Patrick used the shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the Irish, so the shamrock as a symbol is also very much connected to Saint Patrick himself.

Greenland is an Irish name. This is proven because Irish people are always represented by something green, such as a clover, or Saint Patricks Day. Greenland is well not green but still called green.

Not true. They wear green or orange. About 500 years ago William of Orange, a Catholic noble was at war with the Protestant Irish. His troops wore Orange and the Irish wore green. Up to this day the Catholic in Ireland wear orange and the Protestant green. This difference through the centuries has been the cause of much of "troubles" in Ireland.

In America it is tradition for EVERYONE to wear something green. School kids have a tradition of their own, if you are caught without something green: you get a pinch. Not a mean pinch, it's all in fun. It is also considered good luck to wear green on St. Patrick's day. Wearing green also serves as making you Irish by proxy, if you are not actually Irish. America has a huge population of Irish descendants.
