Who started the tradition of pinching on St Patrick's day?
It's apparently an entirely American tradition that probably started in the early 1700s with Irish immigrants. Those celebrating St. Patrick's day claimed that wearing green made one invisible to leprechauns, who would pinch anyone they could see (anyone not wearing green). People began pinching those who didn't wear green as a reminder that leprechauns would sneak up and pinch green-abstainers.
It supposedly started with Leprechauns who pinched anyone around them not wearing green.
It's an American tradition... In the 1700s, it was thought that, if you wore green, it made you invisible to the Leprechauns. This was good, because they would pinch anyone they could see. So the pinching is to warn and remind you about the Leprechauns.
