What is a leprechaun?

Are you wondering what a leprechaun is? It’s very simple! A leprechaun is a type of fairy. Usually, a leprechaun has a little beard and is very small. You’ll often see these little guys hanging around St. Patrick’s Day and they are a ton of fun. You don’t always hear about leprechauns throughout the year but when this green holiday rolls around, you’ll hear a lot more about those leprechauns. 

What do leprechauns represent?

When you see leprechauns floating around during St. Patrick’s Day they are associated with riches and gold. Leprechauns are often known for being glamorous and a lot of fun. Usually, leprechauns are seen at the end of a rainbow too, which also represents riches and gold. Leprechauns also seem to be associated with anything that is “Irish.”
