Monday, May 23 is Lucky Penny Day!
Every year, it’s a day to celebrate good luck and the joy of finding a lucky penny. You may have heard that it’s only good luck to find a penny that’s heads-up, but we disagree! Any penny is a lucky penny. And it’s from the year you were born, then it’s doubly lucky.
In honor of the day, here’s a fun poem to celebrate Lucky Penny Day. You may have heard the first part, but did you know the second?
“Find a penny, pick it up, and all day long you’ll have good luck.”
That’s the first part. Next time someone you’re with finds a penny and recites that poem, here’s what you can say in response:
“Find a penny, give it to a friend, and your luck will never end!”
When you say that second part, be sure and put out your hand for the penny. It’s guaranteed to make your friend laugh!
In addition to pennies, lots of other items are thought to be good-luck charms. Butterflies, four-leaf clovers, we love the idea of hanging some on your wall in the form of good-luck art! That way, good luck is never far.
To celebrate Lucky Penny Day, why not drop a few pennies here and there throughout your day? You can help someone else have a bit of luck, which is a lucky thing for you too.
Have a Lucky Day!
