Do You Feel Lucky?!?

Do you have a lucky charm? No, not that magically delicious cereal, but a lucky talisman? Although, come to think of it, Lucky Charms does have a rainbow, ya know the whole pot of gold thing does have luck surrounding it.  

I have several things I consider lucky. I have an Angel in my car, to watch over me. I have a special necklace that I wear for luck, it has a number 7 inside and the birthstones for each of my kids.

When I was growing up, I used to carry a rabbit’s foot for luck. Oh, quick history lesson, did you know the lucky rabbit foot is believed to begun with the Celtic people around 600bc. It’s believed that this superstition had a lot of conditions though. The donor rabbit had to be killed in a particular place, killed by a particular manner, or by a person possessing particular attributes (for instance by a cross-eyed man). Not just that, but the foot had to be the left hind foot. I’m still not done! The rabbit must have been shot or captured in a cemetery. The phase of the moon is also important! To be really lucky the moon should be a new or full moon.  Who knew?!?!

lucky-horseshoe-fynes-designsI have a Horseshoe over my door, I might as well continue your lessons….. It’s said that the horseshoe should be hung like a U so that it fills with luck!!

Lady bugs! It’s lucky to have a ladybug lands on you. Killing a ladybug is bad juju, of course they are good for the garden too.  

The elephant with his trunk going UP has been a good luck charm since the 1930s.

I even channel Clint Eastwood’s famous line “Do ya feel lucky punk? Well, do ya??” when someone tries to grab that last Reese Peanut Butter Egg. 

When my son was little we use to say “See a penny pick it up and all day long you’ll have good luck”  Zac added to that poem,  “if you immediately give it away you get double the luck”. Yeah, that kid had a full piggy bank!! Smart kid! 

I’m outta here now, cause all this talk of luck is making me feel very lucky. Time to grab my lucky penny, rabbit’s foot and my lucky bracelet with the number 7 on it and spin some reels!! Grab your lucky charm and click here to play online casino games with me.

    I never had good luck charms either. A friend of mine had a rabbits foot when I was a kid and I thought it was gross! She even stuffed it in her pocket, Like totally yuck!! LOL I too have my confidence in Christ and that is my life. I think that we all grow up with different ideas and that’s fine too. We are all striving to make ourselves better in every way. In the end of life we will look back at what we did in the name of Jesus, and that’s what matters most of all.

    I don’t think that I have a lucky charm. All of this talk about luck makes me think of “Lucky Charm” by Madonna.

    I don’t believe in luck but I used to! I believe in fate. Thinking about luck always reminds me of the quote in Titanic by Billy Zane, “A real man makes his own luck..” Lol
