Shooting Star: Because they're relatively rare to see, and disappear so quickly, wishing on shooting stars can be difficult. According to legend, if you do see a shooting star and are able to make your wish in time, it should come true within 30 days.
Lucky Penny: Pennies have come to be known as lucky because of the popular Depression-era phrase, "Find a penny, pick it up, all day long you'll have good luck." May 23rd is Lucky Penny Day.
Four-Leaf Clover: This rare variation of the three-leaf clover is said to bring good luck to its finder, especially when found accidentally. There may be one four-leaf clover in a patch of 10,000 three-leaf clovers. According to legend, each leaf of the clover represents something: the first stands for faith, the second for hope, the third for love, and the fourth for luck.
Rainbow: Finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow would certainly be lucky! In western culture, the rainbow is considered something lucky to see, and has become a symbol of renewed hope.
Rabbitâ€™s Foot: Most people around the world believe carrying a rabbitâ€™s foot can bring good luck. This belief most likely originated with the Celts around 600 B.C. According to North American legend, it must be the rabbitâ€™s left hind foot that is used as a charm, and in some cases it can only be from a rabbit captured in a cemetery, on a full or new moon, and on Friday the 13th.
Upside-Down Horseshoe: One legend says horseshoes are lucky because they are traditionally made with iron, which apparently keeps away mischievous fairies. Hanging them upside-down allows the horseshoe to hold the luck inside forever.
The Number 7: Considered by the ancient Greeks to be "the perfect number", the number "7" appears in many important places: there are 7 days of the week, 7 colors of the rainbow, and 7 planets visible to the naked eye. In addition, the 7th son of a 7th son is supposed to be gifted, and rolling the number 7 in many dice games wins big money.
Ladybug: Many cultures believe that if a ladybug lands on you, you will have good luck, especially if you do not brush it off. In Austria, theyâ€™re even called "Glueckskaefer", or "lucky bugs". Some believe that if a man and woman see a ladybug at the same time, they will fall in love. To some of the superstitious, the deeper the red and the more spots the ladybugs have, the luckier they are and the more prosperity they will bring.
Throwing Salt Over Your Shoulder: According to the Bible, throwing salt over your shoulder is supposed to be a way to keep the devil at bay. Traditionally, if you spill salt, use your right hand to throw some over your left shoulder and you will blind the devil from seeing your error.
Double-Yolk Egg: Approximately one egg in every 1000 has two yolks, so finding one can be lucky. According to legend, you will have even greater luck if you eat a double-yolk egg on Easter.
Wishbone: Though usually an American Thanksgiving tradition played after the turkey has been consumed, the two-person, tug-of-war-like game of pulling apart the wishbone began with the Etruscans, long before America was discovered, almost 2400 years ago. When you and an "opponent" grab each end of the wishbone and pull in opposite directions and the bone breaks, the person who ends up with the longest piece of bone will have good luck. The phrases "I can't get a break" and "I need a lucky break" come from this competition.
Nautical Star: The nautical star, or North Star, provides guidance, and is a good luck symbol among sailors. In biblical lore, it gave direction to the promised land.

WOW. Thanks so much, Su! I enjoyed doing the research and deciding which charms to include. There are so many things considered by cultures all around the world to be lucky...and unlucky. Hopefully these will bring me some luck in the contest.
It was great to be able to look at this design in detail without having to crane my neck - very thoughtful of you to attach the details images. This is a very charming design, and I loved your descriptive notes, learned many interesting things. I really commend you for putting togetehr such a greta and complete package and hope it does well in the Contest.
Thanks so much, Julie! There's also a legend that cracking open a double-yolked egg means someone in the household is pregnant or will be soon. Good thing it's not one child per egg you find!

A very clever and unique design! I had no idea double yolk eggs were lucky, we had nine in a dozen that had a double yolk once, I don't know what they were feeding those chickens! Loved reading your description too.
Thank you, Nancy and Victoria!
I love the description; and think your design is quite unique and a lot of fun.

Good luck this week Amy! Your design is as clever as it is beautiful!
nice.. it's a fun design and the actual calendar bits are very clear and nicely readable.
WOW! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for such wonderful comments, compliments, and observations! @pinksodapop: Not sure what getting a whole TWO DOZEN double-yolk eggs means--that should give you a lifetime of luck...or, in the least, a huge omelet!
What a great idea and the illustration is beautiful!
p.s. great descriptions too ;o)

You've outdone yourself with this one! WOW!!! Good luck this week :)
These lucky charms are linked to some fascinating stories as well as to the pretty bracelet! Wiping dishes would be less of a chore if these messages of good fortune were dreamed about while doing the kitchen duty!
Wow, this is fabulous. I love how the months follow the bracelet that snakes through the design.
