Green as the Emerald Isle!

The colour green is everywhere on St. Patrick’s Day! And there are as many names to refer to the colour as there are shades: mint green, olive green, pea green, forest green and emerald green—the colour of the Emerald Isle, and the one you’ll surely see most on March 17. Green is also used in a number of English expressions, as you’ll discover in this quiz! 

Are you ready to exercise your grey matter? If so, you’ve got the green light!
