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!!
