St. Patrick's Day
From Webkinz Insider Wiki
In 2010, Ganz decided to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Webkinz World for the first time. In the week leading up to the Holiday, they set a tiny jig-dancing Groundhog dressed like a Leprechaun loose in the Clubhouse. Players clicking on the critter received one of six different rainbow-colored Jelly Coins (food). Those who spotted the Leprechaun six times and collected all six Coins were rewarded with a "Catch the Leprechaun Pot of Gold".
In 2011, "the second year", the promotion was renamed to 2011 Leprechaun Chase and a new prize was awarded.
The event continues in 2016, still named the "Leprechaun Chase".
