If you want to meet a leprechaun, forget chasing rainbows – you’ll have to be in Huntsville, AL tomorrow for the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. While I’ve never seen the parade myself, even though it’s been staged for many years, I happen to know there’s always a gentleman participating who just….might…be…the real deal Leprechaun.
Well, yes, okay, I’m related to him! But judge for yourself from the photo. I hope you wear the Green on Sunday the 17th because everyone is Irish that day, right? Wishing you many rainbows and pots of gold…from the Leprechaun’s sister LOL.
“Leprechauns, castles, good luck and laughter. Lullabies, dreams and love ever after. Poems and songs with pipes and drums. A thousand welcomes when anyone comes!”
“It is better to spend money like there’s no tomorrow than to spend tonight like there’s no money!” –Irish toast
“May misfortune follow you the rest of your life, but never catch up.” –Irish saying
“…a sunbeam to warm you, a moonbeam to charm you…a sheltering Angel so nothing can harm you!” Irish blessing

My family is of Irish descent and very pleased with ourselves indeed, especially on St. Patrick’s Day. In the city where my brother lives, they have had an annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade for many years now and he participates as A Classic Leprechaun, which makes me happy and very proud!
So what’s your favorite thing about St. Patrick’s Day?
