Lucky Symbols: Part Three

This is the third and final part of our Lucky Symbols series. We’ve looked at some well-known and some lesser known luck symbols and their origins. In this news item, we’ll be wrapping up with the final two luck symbols, the pot at the end of the rainbow, and the triple 8’s, both very well-known in most cultures.

In Irish mythology, the creature called the Leprechaun stashes away a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, because he knows that this is a very good hiding place for his treasure. It is said that if you catch a Leprechaun he will grant you three wishes for his freedom, and you can use one of the three to attain his pot of gold. The funny aspect of this folklore is that the Leprechaun in fact stores more than one pot of gold away in various locations, so the joke’s on us!

Pot of gold

To ensure your chance at gaining theLeprecahun’s lucky pot of gold just follow these simple steps:

1.    Listen for the sound of a tiny hammer – this is what gives away the location of a Leprechaun.

2.     Sneak up on him, and hopefully he won’t hear you and disappear.

3.     Hold on tight! These little guys put up quite a fight!

4.    No matter what you do, DO NOT take your eyes off the Leprechaun – he will escape if you do.

5.    If he doesn’t want to tell you where his pot of gold is located, use one of your wishes that he will grant you for his release to find the gold!

This pot of gold is especially lucky because it holds within the magical powers of the Leprechaun and each coin it contains was lovingly collected and stored by the Leprechaun. That’s why they make such efforts to hide their gold pots away!

What are your thoughts on the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? Is it real, or perhaps just a metaphor for life having rewards for those of us who work hard? Tell us your opinion in the comments section below and you'll earn lotto points!

Lucky 8s

The triple 8s are lucky for entirely different reasons. In Chinese culture, the number 8 is auspicious because when spoken in Chinese, the word “eight” sounds similar to the word for “prosper” or “wealth”. There’s also a visual resemblance between the symbols of the two digits 88 and “double joy” in Chinese. 8 is such a favourable number that it’s even luckier to have more than two 8s next to each other.
