Most of the year it's not that easy being green (just ask Kermit the Frog), but there’s no doubt that when St. Patrick’s Day rolls around, it’s actually way easier if you’re green. All those lucky green folks out there won’t have to stress about what to wear on St. Patrick’s Day because — well — they’ll wear exactly what they always wear! Not only will they be able to sleep in an extra 5 minutes that morning, but they also won’t have to spend the day hiding in the bathroom to avoid getting pinched or frantically trying to convince people that, yes their shirt is green, NOT turquoise.

If you need a little more luck this March 17th (or you just want to avoid getting pinched) then take a page out of one of these famous green characters’ books.

1) Star Wars’ Yoda

Come to the Green Side, we’ve got luck!

2) Marvel’s Green Goblin

Spider-Man always beats the Green Goblin in battle, but we think that this St. Patrick’s Day the Green Goblin might just have Spidey beat instead. A red and blue suit? Bring on the pinches!

3) Star Wars’ Greedo

Poor Greedo. He definitely didn’t have the luck-of-the-Irish on his side during that fateful day in the Mos Eisley Cantina. If Greedo was a little luckier, Han wouldn’t have shot first.

4) Marvel’s Gamora

Gamora might be a fierce warrior but even she is willing to pick a four-leaf clover for some added luck against Thanos.

5) Marvel’s She-Hulk

You definitely don’t want to pinch She-Hulk because she will definitely Hulk out on you. No one messes with She-Hulk.

6) Toy Story’s Rex

No matter how many times Woody and Buzz Lightyear remind Rex that he’s green (and he’s safe on St. Patrick’s Day), poor Rex is still terrified of getting pinched every year.

Rex is printed with hearts flashing out of beams and "I'm a Hugger" text at the top

7) Marvel’s Hulk

It’s a good thing that the Hulk is green because he can’t seem to stop his shirt from getting ripped. So — even if he remembered to wear a green shirt — he’d probably end up destroying it before St. Patrick’s Day was over anyway.

8) Toy Story’s Green Aliens

Ohh the Claw! The Green Aliens must have had a lucky four-leaf clover in their space suits because they ended up going home with Andy instead of Sid!

9) Uncle Grandpa’s Mr. Gus

Mr. Michael Marshal Breakfast Gusford, or Mr. Gus, can’t wait to head to the pub for a St. Patrick’ Day pint with Uncle Grandpa and Belly Bag. It’s worth getting a bigger belly bag for some of those tasty fish and chips.

10) The Powerpuff Girls Buttercup

Cartoon Network’s Buttercup is made of sugar, spice, and everything nice but — thankfully — she also has a little bit of luck and Chemical X in the mix too!

Buttercup is printed in various poses next to her name

11) The Powerpuff Girls’ Mojo Jojo

Even villains love St. Patrick’s Day! Plus, Mojo Jojo needs all the help he can get to defeat the Powerpuff Girls. He doesn’t seem to be a very good villain...

Mojo Jojo is printed with a devious grin on his face

12) Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent

Don’t upset Disney’s Maleficent. She will definitely curse you if you forget to invite her to your St. Patrick’s Day party!

13) Monsters Inc’s Mike

What’s scarier than a monster in your closet? How about forgetting to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day? Thankfully, Mike Wazowski won’t have to worry about that.

14) Super Mario’s Luigi

Nintendo’s Luigi dresses all in green and he’s always after gold coins… Maybe he’s really a leprechaun!?

15) Legend of Zelda’s Link

It's dangerous to go alone on St. Patrick’s Day! Take this green Nintendo shirt.

Link is printed with his sword at the ready

16) Bring It On’s Clovers

The Toros better watch out because there’s no beating a Clover on St. Patrick’s Day.

17) Inside Out’s Disgust

Pixar’s character Disgust might not be a fan of broccoli, but she is surprisingly all about corned beef and cabbage.

18) The Good Dinosaur’s Arlo

Arlo and Spot must have a lucky horseshoe or something because they survived that infamous “end of the dinosaur” comet!

19) Super Mario’s Yoshi

Mario may not follow the whole “wear green on St. Patrick’s Day” rule, but his sidekick Yoshi really takes it to heart.

20) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello are hoping to find a pizza at the end of the rainbow.

If you aren’t one of the lucky few who rocks a signature green look all year long, then save yourself the trouble by finding the perfect Fifth Sun St. Patrick’s Day t-shirt instead. Everyone will be green with envy when they see your festive St. Patrick’s Day tee!
