About the Holiday

Leprechaun Day is a holiday that celebrates the legendary Irish elf. Merriam-Webster.com describes Leprechauns as "a mischievous elf of Irish folklore usually believed to reveal the hiding place of treasure if caught". They wear green clothes, green hat, have red beards, have big buckles on their belt, hat, and sometimes shoes. These small yet quick elves are said to be practical jokers as well as shoemakers. They are usually hiding because, as legend has it, if caught they must give up their pot gold or grant three wishes. It's not uncommon for children to make a Leprechaun trap.
