How to Fill Your Home with Luck

How to Fill Your Home with Luck

Saint Patrick’s Day may only fall once a year, but most homeowners are looking to keep luck in their homes all year round. Take a look at some of these common lucky household items and the beliefs behind them.

Broom

New Brooms: It is considered bad luck to bring the broom from an old house into a new one. Instead, leave the old broom behind when you move out, and buy a new broom to carry in when you first enter your new home.

Goldfish in Bowl

Goldfish: Having a pet goldfish in your home is said to bring positivity and good luck. If you have a big enough aquarium, eight goldfish kept with one black fish is the ideal to remove bad luck.

Stack of Coins

Coins: In the Philippines, it’s believed that scattering coins around the living room of a new home will bring financial prosperity.

Horse Shoe

Horseshoe: Hanging a horse shoe above your doorway is said to protect evil from entering your household.

Dream Catcher

Dreamcatchers: In Native American cultures, a dreamcatcher hung in the bedroom is thought to ward off bad dreams.

Four Leaf Clover

Shamrocks: And of course, having the symbol of a shamrock in your home. The three leaves of the Shamrock is said to represent yesterday, today, and tomorrow. It will bring luck lasting through your life.

While being lucky in your house is very important, having a clean house is even better. You can learn more about hiring a house cleaning service from The Cleaning Authority.
