Happy St. Patrick’s Day Eve

I caught a leprechaun!!   

This one loves the holidays and being a kid. Luckily I got the St. Patrick’s day holiday box down from the attic yesterday, just in the nick of time to begin the celebrations. He built his leprechaun trap and still hopes to catch one tonight.

Wish you luck, Charlie!! 

Before you go, here is an Irish Blessing for you:

May you have love that never ends,

lots of money, and lots of friends.

Health be yours, whatever you do,

and may God send many blessings 

to you!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day. 

Leprechaun Traps

Where did this tradition begin?  Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day and Charlie has made yet another Leprechaun trap. He’s hoping to trick the little trickster into his trap and catching him. I wonder what he would do with him if he caught him?  What would you do with a Leprechaun? Do they have gold? Will they grant you wishes?  I think it’s one of those fun little mysteries that is quite intriguing to kids.

At some homes, the Leprechauns like to play tricks and mess up the house by putting the chairs on top of the tables, turning the toilet water green and tee-peeing the house with toilet paper.  Usually, they leave little treats or coins for good boys and girls.

I wonder if the Leprechauns will arrive tonight at your house or mine.  Enjoy the giggles and the magic and mystery.  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!
