In the event you come across a leprechaun on St. Patrick’s Day, it’s imperative you follow proper leprechaun protocol while interacting with the leprechaun. Not doing so, could mean many years of unwanted bad luck.
When meeting a leprechaun:
- Always look a leprechaun in the eye, it is polite and it forces him to tell you the truth about where his gold is.
- Never take your eyes off of him: leprechauns are extremely fast and if you look away for one second, he will escape.
- Don’t be too greedy: if you catch a leprechaun, you can ask for a pot of gold, but just the one.
“May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow, And may trouble avoid you, wherever you go.” -Irish Blessing
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
