Legend has it that leprechauns are little creatures with red beards, who wear a black or green hat with a buckle, a green coat, gold-buttoned pants, and gleaming black shoes. They’re known for being mischievous little beings who enjoy making shoes and saving their gold in a pot at the end of a rainbow. According to legend, catching a leprechaun would grant you three wishes as well as good luck.
Leprechaun and St Patrick’s Day
Leprechauns and Saint Patrick’s Day are linked since they both have Irish origins. Apart from the fact that they are both Irish symbols, there is no obvious link between Saint Patrick and the leprechaun. Leprechauns have become intrinsically linked with Saint Patrick’s Day, and this is unlikely to change anytime soon.
