:iconthesmallwonder: Some thoughts from Katie (thesmallwonder)

“See a penny pick it up, all the day you’ll have good luck!”

It doesn’t matter that I’m not a little kid, I still pick up pennies for luck when I see them. Though they have to be heads-up, of course. I also refuse to walk under ladders, I don’t open umbrellas indoors, and I try my best to avoid cracks in the sidewalk. It might be silly superstition, or maybe there’s something more to it.

What ever you believe, cultures and countries around the world and throughout time have decided that different symbols, animals, and events represent good luck.

Check out some of our favorite signs of good luck below!

Cricket by My-AliasI want to hear from you!
How did these symbols get their meaning?
Do you believe in good luck and bad luck?
What symbols represents good luck to you?

Clover by GosiaLucky Clover Pendant Necklace by Om-SocietyFour leaf clover by GanoxClover by AMechanicalMind CloverLuck is
What I make of it
While superstition
Guides my hand
I like to think
I make my own luck
But if the Fates weave their own pattern
Am I nothing
But another stitch?
And so I hold
My four-leaf clover
A little stroke of luck
Brought it to me
And so I have it
To keep me sane
To deceive me
To reassure me
To convince me
I have some control
CloverThree-leaf clovers are common,
Four-leaf clovers not so much,
But does the abundance of them really matter,
Some people are happy with a three-leaf clover,
The clover makes them happy because they love it,
Others are greedy and throw the three-leaf clovers aside,
Looking only for the four-leaf clovers,
The ones tossed aside are undesired and therefore exiled,
By even the most contempt of people,
But there is always the one person,
Who will pick up the beaten and tattered clover,
And he will see not an outcast,
But he will,
C Lover

The end of day has come.
The moon that shines so bright,
She is my only guide.
Now is the time of darkness,
The time to reflect upon the mind,
To see the minds reflection,
Like the moon reflects the sun,
The source of boundless light.
May calmness come to all,
Like the calmness of the night,
Which is peaceful and quiet.
Except for crickets playing.

Shooting Stars
A Shooting Star for You by IngridTanShooting Star by RipFire12901Falling Down by Skaterchick18:thumb118725813: Shooting StarShooting star
What luck is this, that I see
Surely, a vain wish
Shooting star.The glass made a tinkling sound.
As it fell to the ground.
The stars twinkled.
Innocent and beautiful.
All of a sudden.
They seemed to jump with happyness.
And send one single one.
Shooting down to earth.
It lay in the earth.
Laying there smoking.
A ghostly rage filled it.
As it stared at its own above it.
And it cursed to its own.
Up in that inky blackness.

Hm. Fourleaf clover is most definitely lucky, or associated with such, partly because it is so rare.

i dont know how these sybols got there meaning....
i do sort of believe in good luck and bad luck but i also beleive that there's someone up above who can CHOSE wether to strike you with a lightning bolt or not ...
the number 7 is my good luck charm and if i see anything that adds up to 7 i go crazy . but alot of bad things have happened accurring with the number 7 thats why my back up good luck charm is an owl or the color red ... but thoseare practicly just my favorite things so *shrugs *
