St. Patty’s Day Fun – Day 2 with treats, trivia and games
Did you know….
Get your green on! Consider yourself warned: if you don’t wear green on St. Patrick’s Day, people are allowed to pinch you. It was believed that wearing green made you invisible to leprechauns, who would pinch anyone they could see. Revelers began pinching those who didnâ€šÃ„Ã´t wear green as a reminder of that belief.
Drinking Games – Fisty Kisses
Up to five people can play and the rules are real easy. Everyone applies a heavy coat of lipstick (men included) and drinks from a communal pitcher in a clockwise fashion. The last person to get the pitcher pretends to be angry and yells, “Hey! There’s lipstick on my glass! Who did this?!” The first person to laugh gets punched in the mouth. Socko!
