Things were rough in Ireland, so they came up with folklore to cheer themselves up.

The Mayans must have been drunk during the prediction of 2012

I don't believe in leprechauns, but they're funny folklore. They're supposed to be short red-haired Irish elves who know of treasure, and if you look them in the eye they must do what you say. I say it's the best way to get rich, if you lived in a fantasy world! :)

They jumped ship in Liverpool England after their voyage from Darwin Australia where they had stowed away on a tramp steamer. They eventually migrated to Ireland where they live today.

Leprechauns are the descendants of a space crew that was stranded in the place we call Ireland, long before humans evolved on this planet.

Well......it's like this. A mother and father leprechaun fall in love and mate (ask your mother about mating). 9 month later, a wee leprechaun is born. That's where they come from.

Ireland of course. That's why they are irish & they are as mean as mean as mean can be. Never take his pot of gold. You won't live long enough to return it.  A lep will use every trick in the book to get his gold back.
