These are my favorite St. Patty's Day earrings, along with a matching pin. Yes, that's a shamrock they're wearing, but they are happy to see you.
One time my roommate and I went to the Raleigh St. Patrick's Day parade and were approached by an old man with orange hair and an orange beard who was dressed as a leprechaun, right down to his pointy shoes. He was walking along the crowd giving candy to the kiddies. As he approached the kids near us, he was saying, in a mock Irish accent, "How bout some candy for the wee little ones?"
Then he approached us with the candy and added, "And the not so little ones" as he creepily eyed our chests.
