Some say the four leaves represent fame, wealth, love and heal. All agree that the four leaf clover is one of the most auspicious good luck symbols around.
Chances of discovering a four leaf clover are 1:10 000. For that reason alone we see it is lucky indeed.
A Christian legend tells the story that Eve brought a four leaf clover with her when she was expelled from Paradise.
Anyone lucky enough to be in possession of four leaf clovers has consequently a piece of the blessed Paradise.
Four is considered a masculine number. Four is also the number of the cross.
Taking into account how rare the four leaf clover is, many Christians seemed to favor the four leaf clover to the shamrock with three leaves.
See the Fairies
A common belief during the Middle Ages was that a person who carried the rare four leaf clover would have the ability to see fairies.
The bearer could also recognize witches and potential evil spirits lurking about. The clover in this conviction does not seem to serve those faint of heart, but certainly served as a precaution against all threats they believed to be very real.
This was believed to be a true protection against the evil eye.
Four leaf clovers have been considered lucky for centuries. This is a very old superstition.
Expect Something Good
John Melton, an English writer wrote the following in 1620 about the clover:
“That if any man walking in the fields, find any foure-leaved grasse, he shall in a small while after find some good thing.”
