Horseshoe

Horseshoes, they’re not just for barns! Commonly thought of as a symbol of protection and luck, horseshoes have much folklore surrounding them. You may be wondering if it’s bad luck to hang a horseshoe facing down, and there is some debate about this. Some believe that the U should be upright to “catch” good luck, while others say that the U should point down to spread luck onto others. Either way, a horseshoe charm is a classic addition to the end of a necklace or a great staple in a charm bracelet.

Four-leaf Clover

According to legend, the luck of the four-leaf clover goes back to Eve, who supposedly carried one out of the Garden of Eden. Others believe in their power because they’re simply so rare to find. For every 10,000 three-leaf clovers, there is only one four-leaf. The four leaves represent faith, hope, love and luck. Four-leaf clovers may be the best-known good luck charm in the West, and an icon of St. Patrick’s Day. St. Patrick supposedly used a three-leaf clover to teach the faithful about the Holy Trinity – the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost – and this is where clovers may have gotten their reputation. Four-leaf clovers are far rarer than three-leaf clovers and finding such a treasure is practically proof of one’s good luck. They also come with delightful lore: carrying one revealed Fairies hiding behind flowers.

Pig

Ancient Celts believed that pigs represented abundance and they were associated with Phaea and Ceridwen (fertility moon goddesses). "Schwein gehabt" in German means "got pig" literally or "got lucky there." It is a common expression of good fortune—pigs represent wealth and prosperity. Marzipan pigs are gifted for this reason.

Ladybug

What does it mean when you see a ladybug? Many believe a ladybug (sometimes referred to as a ladybird) embodies "Lady Luck" or good fortune and prosperity. To see one in your house is a good omen as they were believed to help farmers in the Middle Ages since they feed on pests like aphids that destroy crops. It is believed that killing a ladybug can curse you with bad luck and that having one around you can cure you of illness.

 

Mushroom

According to German legend finding a red-capped mushroom with white spots or 'gluckspilz' (literally lucky mushroom) is a sign of good fortune. It is also known as the Christmas mushroom and brings with it blessings for the New year.
