The Four Leaves Each Symbolise:

Faith - Hope - Love & Luck

History of The 4-Leaf Clover:

What of the history behind four leaf clovers being considered lucky charms? Since the operative number is four, the history behind four leaf clovers as lucky charms is clearly distinct from the Trinitarian tradition behind the shamrock [with 3 leaves]. Indeed, the significance invested in four leaf clovers pre-dates Christianity, going back to the pagan period, when four leaf clovers were Celtic charms.

Celtic dominance once extended across Ireland and much of Western Europe. It was the Druids (Celtic priests) who elevated four leaf clovers to the status of Celtic charms, allegedly potent against malevolent spirits. Their status as Celtic charms is the origin of the modern belief in their power to bestow good luck.

The leaves of four leaf clovers are sometimes said to stand for faith, hope, love, and luck.

But another interpretation is widely known via the following verse:

I'm looking over a four-leaf clover
That I overlooked before.
One leaf is sunshine, the second is rain,
Third is the roses that grow in the lane.
No need explaining the one remaining
Is somebody I adore.
I'm looking over a four-leaf clover
That I overlooked before.
The first literary reference to draw on the tradition of four leaf clovers as Celtic charms seems to have been made in 1620. In that year Sir John Melton wrote, "If a man walking in the fields finds any four-leafed grass, he shall in a small while after find some good thing." On average, t are 10,000 three leaf clovers for every instance of a true four leaf clover.

Now, based on this statistic of 1 in 10,000, why not buy one now as a good luck charm for yourself?

Or as a gift for someone you care about?

Or even for someone who is perhaps not having a very easy time with life right now?

T can be any number of good reasons why purchasing this little lucky charm will seem like a super idea.
