ExplorationA Super Superstition?
A lot of the time, people associate superstitions with bad luck, but many superstitions also talk about good luck!
Some examples include horseshoes or four-leaf clovers, which are both supposed to be symbols of good luck! Have you ever found a four-leaf clover? They're very rare, which is why they're considered so lucky!
Wishbones are another superstitious bringer-of-good-luck! Have you ever pulled a wishbone with a friend? The wishbone is one of the bones you find when eating a chicken or turkey. It's shaped like a “V,” and each person pulls one side of it. Whoever ends up with the larger half [superstitiously!] has their wish come true!
Do you know of any other good-luck superstitions??
