All cultures have things they think are “lucky” and “unlucky.” In Japan, for example, the number 7 is lucky and 4 is unlucky. The date of Friday the 13th, in English-speaking countries, is an unlucky day. But what else has good and bad luck? Let’s look at some things.
Good luck: Horseshoes
If you put a horseshoe above your door, it will bring in good luck.
Bad luck: Black cats
If a black cat walks in front of you, it means bad luck.
Good luck: Four-leaf clover
If you find a clover with four leaves, it means very good luck!
Bad luck: Breaking a mirror
If you break a mirror, you will get bad luck for 7 years! Please don’t break a mirror.
Maybe these things don’t bring good or bad luck, really. But it’s interesting to think about.
