Do you really believe a four-leaf clover will bring you luck; or if you see a penny and pick it up, you’ll have good luck all day? How many of you have a St. Christopher medal in your car? Maybe you wear a talisman of some sort or perhaps it is simply a lucky shirt. Many people believe in charms and their magical properties of luck and protection. Whatever it may be, you are not alone. Below are a few omens and good luck charms that may not be familiar to you.
Never disturb the swallow’s nest for they are wise birds and will take note of your behavior. They will either give you a reprimand or perhaps if they think you are worthy, grant you a kindness.
If you happen to find the back tooth of a horse, you should carry it with you as long as you live, for you will never want for money. Remember you have to find it by chance. You cannot give it to someone else for the charm will be broken.
If your palm itches, you will be coming into a sum of money; it the elbow itches, you will be changing beds.
If you see two magpies on the left hand when on a journey is unlucky but if you see two on the right it is a good omen.
If you hear the cuckoo on your right hand you will have luck all the year.
To throw a slipper after a party (this is when you are going home) is good luck.
A four-leaf clover represents God’s Grace; therefore, good luck.
A white clover is held in high esteem by the Celts of Wales. It is thought to ward off evil spirits.
Druids held the four-leaf clover in high regard considering them good luck.
It is very good luck to have a hen and her chickens stray into your house.
It is good luck to meet a white lamb in the early part of the morning. The sunlight must be shining on its face.
If you find a purse made from weasel’s skin, you will never be without money.
A cricket in the house is good luck. If you kill it, all the other crickets will come into your house and eat your clothes.
That’s all I have for now. Here’s wishing you have good luck in all you do!
