All About The St. Patrick's Day Leprechaun

Mar 10, 2015

St. Patrick's Day is a holiday that honors St. Patrick and celebrates all things Irish. Every year on March 17th, some kids dress up in green and look for shamrocks, while others try to catch the elusive St. Paddy's Day leprechaun. Kidzworld has the lowdown on this legendary fellow!

Luck o' the Leprechaun

The St. Patrick's Day leprechaun is an Irish fairy. Most fairies are delicate and pretty, but this one sure isn't! He looks like an old man and stands at around two feet tall. Dressed in head-to-toe green, he has a pair of pointy ears and carries a big stick called a shillelagh, which he uses to scare anyone who tries to steal his gold. He prefers to be alone and spends his time either making shoes or searching for gold.

The Good Stuff About His Job

This leprechaun is one lucky guy. How else would you explain the fact that he finds the pot of gold at the end of every rainbow? With that much gold, he can travel around the world as many times as he wants, or buy anything his heart desires - and still have lots of dough left over.

The Bad Stuff About His Job

The St. Paddy's Day leprechaun isn't the best-looking guy around. He's old, wrinkly, short and a little green - literally. On top of all that, he's cursed! If you catch sight of him and keep your eyes locked, he can't escape from your clutches. You can even force him to reveal the secret location of his precious pots of gold and he'll have no choice but to spill the beans! But this sneaky leprechaun has a lot of tricks up his sleeve to make you look away just long enough for him to vanish, so you'll never know the whereabouts of his hidden treasures.

How Much $$$ Does the Leprechaun Make?

Wanna know why you can never find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? It's cuz this little fellow is always one step ahead of you and gets to it first! He has a huge stash of gold hidden away somewhere, making him the richest holiday figure around.
