Is there really gold at the end of a rainbow?


2 Answers

No, this story is based on folklore. The fable says that the end of the rainbow contained riches that could be found, and they would be guarded by leprechauns. It is a story that has become synonymous with Ireland, as well as playing a huge part in St Patrick’s Day celebrations as well.

If you try to go toward the end of a rainbow, you'll find that it always appears to stay the same distance away. Since it's impossible to actually get to the end of a rainbow, we'll never know if there's gold there.
