There appears to be no mention of female leprechauns in traditional Irish folklore. Some believe the female counterpart of a leprechaun is simply a fairy. Although part Irish, I’ve never really believed in leprechauns, male or female. Until now.

My wife is amazing at many things. She’s a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, an educator, a cook, a caregiver and so much more. And today I am convinced she is also a leprechaun, of the female variety.

Each year our family celebrates St. Patrick’s Day much like many other families do. My wife waits until the children go to bed and then she reorganizes the house to look like those devious leprechauns were there; hidden shoes, papers were strewn on the floor, green food coloring in the toilets. She also leaves gold coin chocolates for the little ones to find. Then she makes sure to trip any traps our children have set and makes it appear the leprechauns were too sneaky and they escaped the clever snares. Finally, she climbs into bed exhausted, only to awake before dawn to the giggles, laughter, and pitter-patter of our children’s little feet.St. Patrick's Day Life Insurance Blog
