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.
