ST PATRICK’S Day celebrations around the world involve people dressing in green with shamrocks and leprechauns. But ahead of the joyous Irish celebration, many wonder why the holiday is associated with the colour green, shamrocks and funny little leprechauns. A shamrock is a young sprig of three-leaved clover which has been used as the symbol of Ireland since the 18th century. The word shamrock comes from the Irish seamróg, which means little clover or young clover. According to legend, St Patrick used the shamrock when converting the Irish to Christianity. The three leaves of the plant were used to explain the Holy Trinity – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Who was st patrick and his wife?.
The Northern Leprechaun or Logheryman wore a "military red coat and white breeches, with a broad-brimmed, high, pointed hat, on which he would sometimes stand upside down". Films, television cartoons and advertising have popularised a specific image of leprechauns which bears little resemblance to anything found in the cycles of Irish folklore . Boston Celtics logo features the mascot of the team, Lucky the Leprechaun. Professional wrestler Dylan Mark Postl competed and appeared as Hornswoggle, a leprechaun who lived under the ring, for the majority of his WWE tenure.

Leprechauns are one of the most widespread mascots used today. Commercially images of these little green men are used on anything remotely Irish. Originally leprechauns were dressed in red. That all changed during the 20th century. Leprechauns now are dressed in the color green. These little green men are mostly harmless to humans. They can from time to time be mischievous and practical jokers. They are known to be excellent shoemakers. They are the little people who make shoes for the fairies. Leprechauns are not social creatures and quite difficult to find. These little people dressed in green from Ireland gained a lot of publicity and popularity when the movie Darby O’Gill and the Little People was released in 1959. Leprechauns are Fabulously Wealthy.
