    Re: A horse bite

    In the US, some adults will pinch each other on St. Patrick's Day if the other person isn't wearing something green. Typically, it's a soft, humorous pinch, or maybe just enough to be felt, but not enough to bruise. In theory it's a "punishment" for not wearing green, so a small amount of pain is generally acceptable.

    I'm not sure if that tradition exists outside the US or not. It would be interesting to find out if it does.
