March 17th marks the day when many people will be celebrating the most commonly-recognised patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick. If you can’t trace a drop of Irish in your family line it doesn’t matter because the spirit of the day floods across the world giving everyone a taste of good luck. Minnesotans will dress in hues of green, spend the day discussing the best ways to find the end of a rainbow and what they would do if they found a lucky leprechaun, but how does one catch the breaded little man?
We went to a group of kid experts to find the answers to what types of treasures lay at the end of the rainbow, their best tricks to catching a lucky leprechaun and if they were granted 3 wishes what would they request?
Bless Lucy’s little heart, she replies God is at the end of the rainbow.
Ollie tells us Batman is at the end of the rainbow!
In Laney’s option, the best way to catch a leprechaun is to be nice. (true Minnesotan girl)
Libby tells us it’s impossible to catch a leprechaun because they can teleport.
Ethan rises his eyebrows and quite seriously he asks, “What’s a leprechaun?”
Ruth would like to wish for a live in housekeeper, for a house decorated with hearts everywhere, and she would like lots of American Girl Dolls because she LOVES them.
Jadis believes a big pot of gold with a leprechaun swimming in it awaits at the end of a rainbow!
