Leprechauns

A "leprechaun" is a type of fairy taking the form of an old man with a beard, who wears a red or green coat and hat. Based on Irish stories, they are known to enjoy causing mischief and practical jokes.

If you can catch a Leprechaun, they have magical powers to grant three wishes in exchange for letting them go. When leprechauns aren't spending time repairing or making shoes, they're busy hiding their coins in a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

So next time you see a rainbow, check for the "pot of gold" at the end of it!
