A couple of days ago I noticed that the normal little yellow dude Google has for the Street View is now a leprechaun for St. Patrick’s Day. Very cute.
According to Wikipedia:
In Irish mythology, a leprechaun (Irish: leipreachÃ¡n) is a type of male faerie said to inhabit the island of Ireland. They are a class of “faerie folk” associated in Irish mythology and folklore, as with all faeries, with the Tuatha DÃ© Danann and other quasi-historical peoples said to have inhabited Ireland before the arrival of the Celts.
