Holiday’s come in an assortment of colors, Valentine’s Day is red, St. Patrick’s Day is green, Easter is pastel colors, and the Fourth of July is a combination of red, white and blue. If a person said name a holiday that is orange and black, you’d guess Halloween; brown, orange and yellows are colors of Thanksgiving and, of course, green and red; blue and white, as well as, silver and gold, represent different aspects of Christmas. This is often the way crocheters choose project colors, their customers celebrate by decorating or wearing festive holiday items celebrating the upcoming holiday.
It’s time for the wearing of the green on St. Patrick’s Day, Mar. 17. View how to decorate for a St. Patrick’s Day party or other projects such as dying your pond green or making a crochet toilet paper cover for your bathroom.

Dye your pond green for St. Patrick’s Day
Surprise your friends by adding some color to your pool for your St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Swimming pool water dye is a safe, non-toxic, non-staining and non-caustic solution that has no smell, taste or residue left on swimmers. If a swimmer swallows this pool water treatment no harm will come to them. Even better, while this green pool coloring is in your water it acts as a powerful water clarifier. You will need one 8-oz. bottle of this super-concentrated dye for an average 20,000-gallon pool. There is a enough dye for two different dying times and the pool water color will last for 3–5 days, and simply filters out.
