A Little Leprechaun History for Kids
We all know that leprechauns have played a central role in modern St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.
Leprechauns first appeared in medieval texts, and are a type of fairy native to Ireland. His small stature helps in evading capture; by the time humans realize something is amiss, he’s out the door! At some point in time, this little symbol of Ireland became a secular mascot for St, Patrick’s Day. Also, this legendary little green man has no connection to the Catholic saint.
Now that you know how to catch a Leprechaun, may the luck of the Irish be with you finding a leprechaun or not! A wish that every day for you will be happy from the start and may you always have good luck and a song in your heart. May good fortune be yours, may your joys never end.
