St Patricks Day Lucky Phone Charms

Updated on February 8, 2014

Celebrate St Patrick's Day with a Lucky Phone Charm

St Patrick's Day is the time of the year that we are reminded of good luck and symbols of luck - rainbows, pots of gold, four leaf clovers, horseshoes, rabbits feet and lucky pennies. Many of us have something we think of as a personal good luck charm or symbol. Maybe it is a lucky number, an animal totem, our zodiac sign, a gem or birthstone or some other object. Since most people carry their cell phone with them wherever they go, attaching a phone charm with your own lucky charm or symbol is a fun way to personalize your cell phone, make it uniquely yours and a handy place to keep your lucky charm.

Cell phone charms originated in Japan, but their popularity has spread around the world. Cell phone charms are inexpensive, functional and fun! A charm attached to a cell phone in a pocket or purse can be left hanging outside making it easier to find and grab the phone when it rings. Cell phone charms make a great inexpensive, but personalized, gift.

The purpose of this page is to help you locate places where you can find a unique lucky phone charm or see how easy it is to create your own!

What do you think about lucky charms and symbols? - Can an object really bring you good luck?

Since ancient times some people have believed they have a charm, symbol or totem that brings them good luck, while other people think it is just superstitious nonsense. Another theory is that if you believe something will bring you good luck the law of attraction will bring good luck to you. What do you think about luck?

Have you ever had a good luck charm, symbol or number that you believe brought you good luck?

Traditional Lucky Four Leaf Clover

How did four leaf clover's become a good luck symbol?

Either a Four Leaf Clover or a shamrock could be someone's lucky charm, but just to clear up a common misperception, they are not exactly the same thing. The word "shamrock" is derived from the Irish word for clover. St. Patrick is associated with the shamrock, the common three leaved clover. He used its three leaves to help explain the Christian concept of the trinity. Since a four leaf clover has four leaves, it is not the clover associated with St Patrick. A four leaf clover comes from the same type of plant, but is much more rare. The four leaf clover was considered a Celtic good luck charm since the time of the Druids.

Lucky Horseshoe

Why are horseshoes lucky?

The origins of the horseshoe as a lucky charm seem to have come from many cultures. The iron from which they were made supposedly warded off evil witches. Middle eastern cultures have long believed the crescent shape of a horseshoe to prevent evil. Another story is associated with St. Dunstan who was born around 900 AD and is the patron saint of goldsmiths and silversmiths. According to the legend, the devil asked St. Dunstan to shoe his horse, but St. Dunstan nailed a horseshoe to the Devil's hoof instead. The Devil, in great pain, begged Dunstan to remove the shoe. St Dunstan agreed to remove it only after the Devil promised never to enter anyplace where a horseshoe has been placed over the door. So if a horseshoe is your good luck charm, you can put one on your cell phone.
