do you get pinched if you don't wear orange when you're a protestant?

I wore a green t-shirt last year but I was the only one wearing green in my class so I was the only one that got pinched.

This protestants wearing orange on st. patricks day thing is not true. Irish people in general tend to wear green on the day. Orange is worn along with green coz its on the flag.

There's so much history to this orange/protestant thing I'm not going to go into it much, but protestants in the northern part of the country celebrate the weeks around the 12th of july (anniversary of the battle of the boyne) by having parades organised by the "orange" lodges. (name dating back to william of orange). This is probably where you got that from. For more information there's wikipedia! :D

(I'm Irish by the way)
