Celebrated on March 17, on the traditional death date of Ireland´s patron St. Patrick, St. Patrick´s Day has become a popular holiday in many parts of the world.

The tradition of wearing green clothing or accessories on St. Patrick´s Day has been preserved until now but the variety of green items that can actually keep you from getting pinched on the day has expanded greatly compared to what people used to wear and have in the past. From green wigs and hair bows to watches and tablets, check out these 25 Wacky Green Items That Will Keep You From Getting Pinched This St. Patrick’s Day.
