Are Leprechauns Real Or Not?
We Called in the Experts
It is difficult to prove if Leprechauns are real. According to the dictionary, leprechauns are "One of a race of elves in Irish folklore who can reveal hidden treasure to those who catch them." My kids have been busy learning about St. Patrick and Leprechauns at school. They have been asking for jars and money to catch these elusive creatures. My daughter has been consumed with pots of gold. Every one double checked that they were wearing green today to avoid the 'pinch'.
I vaguely recall a leprechaun visiting us at night and leaving treats by a Kleenex box house as a kid. Pretty his name was Lucky. Pretty sure I haven't heard from him in about 30+ years. I wonder what happened to Lucky? Maybe he finally found that pot of gold and retired.
I was curious my kids' take on the matter. I need to know when asked if Leprechauns are real, what did they think?

Do Leprechauns Have Red Hair?
I am not convinced that they are real. I am convinced that my children seriously think a Leprechaun will be moving in with us any time now. I will enjoy watching them set their traps and plot their next steps.
