St Patrick’s Day and Leprechauns

hd-Saint-Patricks-Day-Space-Alien-1
I couldn’t let March 17th go by without a nod to St. Patrick. He was a saint who lived around the year 385 in Scotland. He was captured by the Irish and enslaved for 6 years when he escaped and went back home. He had a dream that the Irish people were calling him to return and minister among them so he became a priest and a bishop and returned to Ireland and ministered there until his death around 461. He built many churches and was a humble man. He died March 17th and that is how St. Patrick’s Day came to be.
Oh, one more thing…he used a shamrock to describe the Trinity –Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Now for the fun stuff. A Leprechaun is an Irish fairy who enjoys pulling pranks and hides his gold at the end of the rainbow.

My granddaughter always makes leprechaun traps and she made one yesterday and almost caught a leprechaun but in the process the trap was destroyed. I told her better luck next year!
If you want a true experience with catching leprechauns, this girl has gone to the extreme in creating a page that tells all about it. It also shows several leprechaun traps from school kids.  She has lots of leprechaun trivia, too.  Check it out.
