Almost every culture has special beliefs reserved for the first day of the year, all of them intended to make a new beginning and to ensure good luck. In some places, it is customary to open the windows at mignight on New Year's Eve so good luck will fly in and bad luck will fly out. It is also considered important nearly everywhere to make as much noise as possible with noisemakers and horns, church bells, and fireworks to encourage the bad luck to go away. If someone kisses you on New Year's Eve, you'll be kissed frequently all year long. And if you take a drink at the stroke of midnight, you will have good luck. It will be even better if you drink the last of the contents of the bottle - but be careful. You won't feel so lucky the next day if you have to drink the first half of the bottle to get to the bottom half!

In many countries, it is thought that a person can affect the luck they will have throughout the coming year by what they do or eat on the first day of the new year. For that reason, it has become common for folks to celebrate the first few minutes of a brand new year in the company of family and friends. Parties often last into the middle of the night...

Below mentioned significance of the numbers 1 to 9, as well as number 13, will hopefully be helpful with finding Your Lucky Number. They have been collected from books and other sources. No claims are made.

Every number has a special significance and according to ancient astrologers and numerologists, every person has a lucky number. In general, odd numbers are considered luckier than even ones.

Our ancestors who developed the idea of lucky numbers didn’t all agree on how to arrive at one, though. Some said that you should add up only the vowels in your first name. Others said the consonants held the key. And still others were convinced that you should add up all the letters of your name plus your birthday. Nearly all numerologists agree with the rule set down by the Greek mathematician Pythagoras in the 6th century. There are only nine numbers, he said. All the rest are simply multiples and therefore repetitious.
One simple way of finding your own lucky number is by adding:

We're all familiar with the shiny, orange, black-spotted ladybug (lady beetle, actually), but these beneficial insects come in other colors as well. One is orange to bright red with few or no markings, one is gray to pale yellow with black markings, and there is also a solid, shiny black one. Unlike some other beneficial insects, even the larva eats the bad bugs. In addition to their noted taste for aphids, they also prey on some mites, scales, mealybugs, and other soft-bodied insects. The adults hibernate in garden litter. In the West, they migrate in fall to hibernate in the mountains.

A Ladybug landing on a person will bring Good Fortune, and if one lands on you when you are ill, it takes the illness away.
If a ladybug lands on the hand of a recently married woman the number of dots on its back is the number of children she will have.
Let the Ladybug go and watch what direction it flys away to find your answer.
Finding a ladybug is good luck (the redder the better)

In our enlightened age, some people say there is no such thing as luck, but they might cross their fingers when they say it. The word superstition comes from two Latin words: “Super’’ and “Stare”. Super means above and stare means to stand. Below listed Good Luck Superstitions are collected from books, writings & folklore.

Fingers Crossed - By making the sign of the Christian faith with our fingers, evil spirits would be prevented from destroying our chances of good fortune.

See a penny, pick it up; all day long you will have good luck.

Knocking on Wood: It was believed that good spirits lived in trees, and that by knocking on anything made from wood, we could call upon these spirits for protection against misfortune.

ADORNMENT - why do we wear jewelry?
If you have ever wondered why we wear jewelry in the exact places we do, stop thinking that it is because the places chosen are the most accessible or make the most sense. In the past, it was common belief that evil spirits and demons could only enter the body through the main orifices. It would then make sense to place jewels or metals near those areas to prevent demonic possession.
Therefore, earrings dangling near two openings in the body protected the ears from allowing a devil passage into the body. In India, noserings were used for the same reason, as were tattoos and designs around the mouth and eyes. The tradition of fingernail and toenail painting originated because of a need to protect oneself from demonic entrance. Nails of the toes and fingers were painted so that the demons could not penetrate the skin in these vulnerable areas and gain access to the body. The most protective article of jewelry by far was the ring. Since it is in the form of a continuous circle, it symbolized eternity and unity. It was also believed that certain stones and metals gain power over time and that they are affected by the good or bad luck of...

Some Symbolic Meaning and Legends of Clovers:

The four-leafed Clover, possibly because it is relatively rare, has been a Symbol of Good Luck for centuries. According to tradition, one leaf brings fame; one brings wealth; another insures good health; and the fourth, a faithful lover.

When Adam and Eve were expelled from Paradise, Eve took along a souvenir in the form of a four-leafed Clover. It remained with her as a reminder of her happy days in the Garden of Eden. For generations of people, finding one in their own garden brought the same kind of happiness. So, if you are lucky enough to find one, you are actually holding on to something from paradise.

Another tradition says that a four-leafed Clover stands for the arms of the cross, a powerful symbol even in pre-Christian times. It is also significant to many that the four leaves describe the points of the compass. Some cultures have believed that four-leafed Clovers can prevent madness.
