Happy St. Patrick's Day! I am sure you have had a lucky charm or two in your lifetime. I have a luck Kennedy half dollar that my grandfather gave me years ago. I always make sure I have it when I travel. I was looking at a list of the standard good luck charms and symbols and came up with one unusual one! First of all the standard list is:4 Leaf Clovers, White Elepant, gold coins, rabbits feet, wishbones and horseshoes!Then at the bottome of the list I saw Lucky Pig! That's right a pig! I had never heard of that so of course I had to google and find out more. It turns out in the 18th century in Germany and Austria a "pig" was considered good luck. It was said if you owned a pig you would never go hungry. They also had a saying "A Pig in Clover", so clover played a part in it anyway. Below are pictures of postcards from 1905 that show some very lucky pigs!! The one on the right show's that the pig means "Prosperite" or prosperity! I think the whole country can use that lucky charm right now! Enjoy your St. Patricks Day!!
