Why do people think four leaf clovers are lucky?

Four leaf clovers are considered lucky, but why is that the case? This is a common question, and one that doesn't have a definitive answer.

But there are a few theories out there about why four leaf clovers are considered lucky. One theory is that the four leaves of a four leaf clover represent hope, faith, love, and luck.

This symbolism dates back to the Victorian era, when people would give four leaf clovers to their loved ones as a token of good luck. Another theory is that four leaf clovers are actually quite rare, and finding one is considered to be a lucky event. 

If you are like me who spent hours within the school fields with my friends looking for a four leaf clover at lunch time, rushing who could find one first. None of us ever did, which is why this rarity does often add to why these very small short lived herbs are considered lucky.

The reason why these herbs are so rare is because four leaf clovers are produced by a mutation in the clover plant. This means that they're not as common as three leaf clovers, which are the more traditional lucky symbol. This making a four leaf clover quite rare and unique.

Another reason people might think four leaf clovers are lucky is because they're often associated with Ireland. The Irish have a long history of folklore and superstition.

One of the most famous Irish legends is that of the Leprechaun. These mischievous little creatures are said to hide a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. So, if you find a four leaf clover, it could be a sign that a Leprechaun is nearby and you might just be lucky enough to find his pot of gold! 

Lastly, four leaf clovers are often used as a symbol of good luck in many different cultures. They've been used as lucky charms for centuries and are still popular today. So, even if you're not Irish, you can still enjoy the good luck that a four leaf clover brings by wearing a clover bracelet

Whatever the reason, four leaf clovers have been considered lucky for centuries. And they show no signs of losing their status any time soon!
