10 Crazy Awesome Things About Leprechauns

10 Crazy Awesome Things About Leprechauns

Leprechaun Illustration for St. Patrick's Day by Amanda Farquharson

It's almost St. Patrick's Day! I love this day because I have some Irish blood and I like beer with food colouring in it. I also loooooove green (enough to name a blog after it!). AND I LOVE LEPRECHAUNS!!!

Check this guy out. He is so cute and hairy . Plus he's got a pot of gold.

10 things I love about leprechauns:

  1. Awesome taste in retro footwear. (And the skills to make it)
  2. They rock the monochromatic colour palette like nobodies business.
  3. They have pots of fake gold.
  4. They don't trust the banks.
  5. They hang out with rainbows.
  6. If you catch one, they grant you three wishes. (Lifetime supply of puns, the return of winter (white chocolate covered) oreos to Canada, & a real life four leaf clover)
  7. Gold. Buckles.
  8. They are mischevious. In my mind, this means they lie like Jon Lovitz. In fact... Jon Lovitz could easily be a leprechaun.
  9. They love green!
  10. They are "Solitary Fairies", which I take to mean.... introverts! I have some introverts I am quite fond of, and that now includes leprechauns.

Please let me know if I missed any. Although I can't imagine anything better than hanging out with rainbows. (Except maybe... a double rainbow? Ha).

How are you spending St. Paddy's?
