The ......... is known as a classic symbol of spring. It is because
of its bright, yellow color. It is also a representative of
joy, friendship, and sunshine. What is this flower?

Penny

"Find a penny, pick it up, and all day long you'll have good luck!"
It is said that a penny has good luck, only if found face side up!

Four-Leaf Clover

Irish legend claims this green plant will bring luck.
That is...if a person can spot one of these rare clovers!
Scientists say the odds of finding a four-leaf clover in the
wild are 1 in 10,000! Keep looking - you may find one!

Horseshoe

Ancient folklore was full of mischievous fairies who were
afraid of metal, so people hung iron horseshoes above
their doors to keep them away.


_____________

Lady Bugs

Many cultures admire lady bugs! These red insects with black
spots are beneficial to farmers and to gardeners, because
they feast on plant-eating pests. This may be why many
cultures admire "lucky ladybugs"!

__________

Rainbow

Legend has it that a pot of gold can be found at
the end of a rainbow. Explaining why the
colorful light is a sign of good fortune.
