This is coming from an Irish guy.... Is it just me, or do your families do this weird stuff too? Last night, my wife is sneaking in our daughters room, who has built a trap to catch "the leprechaun" to leave little clues as if he's been here. Similar to the elf on the shelf crap.... Why is every holiday turning into a "hey kids, its a holiday, you get something!" Her school started this, telling them that the leprechaun comes in and messes up their rooms, etc. etc.... Its not easter, not the tooth fairy.... I dont get it. When I was a kid, we just put on a green shirt, or you got pinched.....That was St. patricks day when I was growing up. Maybe I didnt live?
