St. Patrick's - Irish Man
In Irish Legend, leprechauns are fairies. They take the form of old men wearing little green coats. Leprechauns like to get into a lot of mischief, or play tricks. When they're not making mischief, leprechauns spend their time making shoes. They take the money they earn from making shoes and hide it in a pot of gold which is hidden at the end of a rainbow.
