St Patrick's Day: Leprechaun Tricks on Tees
The original Irish name for these figures of folklore is
"lobaircin," meaning "small-bodied fellow." In Irish mythology, a leprechaun (Irish: leipreachán) is a type of male faerie said to inhabit the island of Ireland. They are a class of “faerie folk” associated in Irish folklore with the Tuatha Dé Danann and other quasi-historical peoples said to have inhabited Ireland before the arrival of the Celts.
Get into the spirit this March and don one of these fun and festive Leprechaun t-shirts. St. Patrick's Day is celebrated on the seventeenth of March.
While it began as a religious holiday and remains so for some, a lot of folks see it as a day of celebration when we're all Irish.
On March 17th you have no excuse other than to go green!
Personalization is the hallmark of Zazzle. Many of these shirts offer the option of your adding your name, the date, etc. Buttons may be able to be customized. It's easy and it's fun!
Belief in leprechauns probably stems from Celtic belief in fairies, tiny men and women who could use their magical powers to serve good or evil. Leprechauns usually take the form of old men who enjoy partaking in mischief. Popular depiction shows them as being no taller than a small child. .Their trade is that of a cobbler or shoemaker, responsible for mending the shoes of the other fairies. Though only minor figures in Celtic folklore, leprechauns were known for their trickery, which they often used to protect their much-fabled treasure. According to legend, if anyone keeps an eye fixed upon one, he cannot escape, but the moment the gaze is withdrawn, he vanishes
