1. Lucky Four-Leaf Clover Charms
Four-leaf clovers are an ancient Irish symbol of luck. The Celts believed that a four-leaf clover could help them see fairies and avoid their mischief, which was believed to be a common source of bad luck.
The four leaves were supposed to have mystical powers representing faith, hope, love, and luck. Another legend has them standing for fame, wealth, health and faithful love.

2. Lucky Horseshoe Charms
Horseshoes are one of the most popular lucky superstitions, with various legends attributed to giving them their lucky powers.
One legend says that horseshoes are lucky because they were traditionally made of iron. Mischievous fairies could not stand the touch of iron, so they shied away from houses that were adorned with it.
Another legend attributes lucky horseshoes to Saint Dunstan, a historical figure who died in 988 AD. According to the legend, Dunstan, who was a blacksmith, was commanded by the devil to shoe his horse. Instead, Dunstan nailed a horseshoe to the devil's foot and refused to remove it and ease the devil's pain until he received a guarantee that the devil would stay away from any house with a horseshoe on the door. Thus, any house with a horseshoe was guaranteed to be lucky.
