Readers Respond: What's Your Favorite Lucky Symbol or Good Luck Charm?

Responses: 70


Good luck charms are a fun way to make yourself feel luckier. A positive attitude is a great way to improve your luck and help you win more sweepstakes. If you don't have a lucky charm already, you might enjoy reading about common symbols of luck. If you do have a favorite good luck charm, I'd love to hear more about it!

Unlucky Charm?

While I was out and about, I saw what looked like a perfect lucky charm. It was a ladybug sitting on a four-leafed clover, which you could stick onto something. I thought I'd use it to decorate my monitor. I peeled the protective plastic off the sticker, pressed it to the side of my monitor... And it immediately fell off, bounced on my desk, and disappeared. It took me over a year to find it again - typical of my luck! So instead, I use a small rubber cow on a keychain, which my sister gave me. It might not be typical, but it sure is cute. (It has, however, been joined by the ladybug on the clover, which seems perfectly well-behaved, so long as it's not expected to stick to anything!)

No Luck

I know many might disagree with me, but I don't think I believe in luck. When chance coincidentally favors you, you exclaim "How lucky is that!" and when chance happens to not favor you then you say: "Aw man! I'm so unlucky". I think the real key to winning sweepstakes or being luck, if you will, is to be persistent and play everyday. Although I agree some of those lucky charms are very pretty :) I think lucky charms are really just about making people feel more optimistic and to cheer you up if your not winning. I think they can also be harmful though if you attribute any success you ever have to a lucky charm. Sorry to get so analytical and introspective, I'm a psychology and philosophy major, lol.

I Know, I'm a Nerd

Mine is a Complete Works of Shakespeare book my dad got for me in second grade. I named it Bill. It is shaped like a large brick, but I bring it with me to tests, and I got into the best school in my city, so I guess it works.

She goes hunting with me I get a giant buck. We go fishing, I get the biggest northern caught in that lake. plus she's insanely lucky herself. lol

My magic "clover"

I've been singing on a stage since I was 13. My first time was the musical "Horton Hears A Who" and our "clovers" were just yarn pieces tied together in a little ball and we all got one. Ever since then I have always had luck with almost everything I've attempted if it was in my pocket :) Even as a freshman in college I bring it every where I go :)
