May 13, 2014: You may be wondering, why on earth is Leprechaun Day in May, when we already had St. Patrick’s Day back in March? Your guess is as good as mine, friend. Perhaps the mythical Leprechauns were not originally affiliated with St. Paddy, and over time we just lumped everything vaguely Irish into one holiday. (In fact, that wouldn’t surprise me at all.) At any rate, the little fellas get their own day today. It’s also National Apple Pie Day, and as my doodle will tell you, I think a really good apple pie is worth its weight in elves’ gold.
