He had only slept for an hour the night before, after celebrating an anti-Christ-mas party with his fellow Leprechaun's. He decided "Golly, since I've only slept one single hour, I might as well take myself an iced ale for the jolly old ride home!".
And thus he did. And thus he drank. And when it came time for him to partake in a pre-rolled tobacco product, he found himself without a source with which to spark a flame. He went to the local Seven Eleven., without a dime on his person, and asked the kind shop-keep for a single solitary book of matches. The shop-keep insisted that the Christ-mas Leprechaun purchase an item before receiving a complementary book of matches. To which the Christ-mas Leprechaun replied "Don't you know, my good fellow, it's Santee Claus' birthday?".
The shop-keep did not appear to be persuaded at what the Christmas Leprechaun had told him. So the Christ-mas Leprechaun continued on his merry old journey home. On his way to his place of dwelling,, he noticed a loaf of bread strewn about his neighbor's lawn. What a marvelous gift to give to our Lord and Savior, Santee Claus, on his birthday that the Christ-mas Leprechaun's neighbors had given to Him!
