A cabin with plenty of food is better than a hungry castle. Heavy reliance on potatoes as a food staple led to hardships and famine when a blight killed most of the crop in 1845. That and other problems caused a huge wave of immigration to the United States.

When I was a kid, I believed in leprechauns, but I always found them to be exhausting little things, especially when in first grade we made our leprechaun traps. I thought I had devised and crafted the most elaborate and most amazing trap ever, but to my dismay, even my trap was torn to shreds just like my friends’ had been upon our arrival the next day of class. My friends said it was our teacher who destroyed the traps and that there were no leprechauns. I knew better.
