Are you wearing Red today?

Happy Saint Joseph's Day! Having lived a long time in a small Italian community - Saint Joseph's Feast was always highly honored. While the Irish wore their green in honor of Saint Patrick, the Italians always wore Red on the day after in honor of the Saint held highest under the Blessed Virgin, her most Chaste Spouse "St Joseph" How do you observe this day? Do you eat Italian foods antipasta, lasagna,mmm maybe some Cannoli for dessert.

i am now!! I had on pink but changed while this page was loading. I am not Italian, and did not know about this tradition, but i think some pasta dish sounds divine!! I guess I should get the water boiling for them now, huh!? It won't be long till supper time here. I wonder, do you get a pinch for not wearing red today?

Nope, no red today. As a matter of fact, I am not wearing much of anything. I suppose if I read the wrong discussion I might blush and then I would have a red face, but sorry, nothing red and nothing green yesterday for that other Irish drunk thing.
