March is the month for all things green!
Remember to wear green on March 17th so that you don't get pinched. This pinching tradition came from folklore about leprechauns, who love to pinch everyone! Legend says that green makes you invisible to leprechauns.
St Patrick's Day commemorates Irish heritage and culture. St Patrick used shamrocks in his teachings and it is now a national symbol in Ireland.
Did you know that the leaves of a shamrock represent hope, love and faith? These three qualities are very important to Princess Odette! A fourth leaf symbolizes luck but these are very hard to find - that's why a four leaf clover brings good luck - have you ever found one?
