The Cloverleaf

Are you a little superstitious? I’m referring to black cat crossing your path, walking under a ladder, or cracking a mirror type stuff.

Our favourite, and our namesake (Cloverleaf), is the fabled four leaf clover. It is estimated that the chances of finding a four-leaf clover are one in 10,000.

The origin of the superstition dates back as far as the biblical story of Adam and Eve. It is believed that when Eve was cast out of the Garden of Eden, she took a 4-leaf clover with her to remind her of the lushness of paradise. Since then, it has become a symbol of good luck and good fortune.

Some of the beliefs surrounding the power of the four-leaf clover include the following:

  1. Each of the four leaves on this lucky charm has a specific meaning — faith, hope, love and luck.
  2. Both children and adults would hang the four-leaf clover at home to ward off evil and bad omens.
  3. A person who finds a 4-leaf clover will meet a future lover on that same day. Some people even go so far as to put the four-leaf clover in their shoe.
  4. Anyone who possesses a 4-leaf clover will have good fortune in any ventures they attempt.
  5. The 4-leaf clover is a charm that protects against evil.

So, always be on the lookout for a 4-leaf clover because you can never have enough good luck!
