While wandering around Dublin, Cinnia happened upon the National Leprechaun Museum. The stories of leprechauns are some of the most prevalent of Irish mythology and folktales. They have charmed both children and adults for thousands of years.
Laughing, who knew this was here. I can’t possibly pass up this opportunity! Tap, tap, tap…I hear him working on his shoe. I’m coming.
The shoemaker to the fairies, the leprechaun is a prankster to humans. He dares you to catch him and if he should let you, will grant you three wishes in return for his release. Be wary of those wishes, for they may disappear as quickly as he does when you let him go. He taunts you with promises of his pot of gold but he’ll never actually let you find it. In some stories he wears two pouches, one containing silver coins, one gold. If he should give you one of the coins you will find later that you have nothing in your pocket but a handful of leaves. There is a lesson to be learned from these tales.
Nothing is free. You cannot have a pot of gold without working hard for it. Wealth is earned not taken from someone else.
Once upon a time...
