National Leprechaun Day is celebrated every year on March 13th. According to Irish folklore, a leprechaun is a supernatural being, fairy, or pixie, often portrayed as a short and mischievous red bearded old man in a green coat and hat. Leprechauns are also believed to possess a pot of gold at the end of rainbows. Leprechauns first became associated with gold through an ancient Irish story which over the years has turned into somewhat of an Irish legend. In Celtic folklore, leprechauns were known for their trickery, which they often used to protect their much-fabled treasure. When talking to Laykin Pierce about her history with leprechauns Laykin replied with, “In elementary school we all use to make leprechaun traps and the next day at school there would be gold and glitter on all of our desks.” When speaking with Jazmin Lentz she replied with, “The elementary school I attended never really did too much for leprechaun day, so I never knew the history on it.”  In conclusion Leprechaun Day is filled with exciting history that a lot of people may not know about.
