Mythical Wednesday; Good Luck Charms

glcOriginally, I had titled this post Lucky Charms, but you have no idea how hard it was to keep from saying, ‘They’re magically delicious!’ As a matter of fact, researching this topic was a bit difficult as just about every link led be back to the cereal. Wasn’t until I changed the keywords that I got something.

Good luck charms have been used by people for centuries and come in about a variety of shapes, sizes and things. Anything from a blessing from a Holy person to an inanimate object to a living creature, can be seen as a good luck charm.  Almost any object can be used as a charm as long as the person who owns it believes in its power.

Here are some interesting good luck charms.

Here are some animal and insect good luck charms.
