Did you know? Leprechaun facts and features:
Although these lucky little Irishmen are now synonymous with the color green, early accounts of leprechauns describe them as wearing red.
The earliest known folk tale to feature a leprechaun comes from the Middle Ages.
Leprechauns are associated with gold. Some stories attribute their wealth to the fine shoes they cobble, others say their role is to protect the treasure of the entire fairy world.
Leprechauns are considered a part of the fairy family. Like most fairies, they are small in size and prone to mischief!
