Do you feel the need of a lucky charm lately because it seems that things don’t go as well as it should be? Or having a rough day or experiencing a series of unfortunate events at work or school and you just wish that somehow your luck would turn around? Oh well, we’ve all been there at some points in our lives and at times whenever that happens, we have that one belief that having a lucky charm would do the trick. Growing up, you’ve probably heard a lot of stuff being said about good luck charms and how it could turn the odds positively for you – just like in Hunger Games, may the odds be ever in your favor stuff. Oh yeah, for centuries we all have that superstitious belief and in some cases, these beliefs are actually helpful and turn bad events around.
Probably, you might think that in this time and age, some items that are believed to be good luck charms are overrated and not at all true. Like, the existence of leprechauns, for example. Not to mention, rainbows, which are considered lucky because of the legend that says that if you dig at the end of a rainbow, you’ll find a pot of gold. However, most people still believe that there are lucky charms which people swear by them while some think it’s just silly. Some popular symbols like the Lucky Four-Leaf Clover (an ancient Irish symbol of luck), Lucky Horseshoe, Rabbit Foot, and a Lucky Penny or Coin. “Find a penny pick it up, all day long you’ll have good luck” and “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a penny in your shoe” are few of the many rhymes our great-grandparents invented to express their belief in the Lucky Penny or Coin.
You might be asking, why are we talking about luck and lucky charms? Well, it’s because of St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner! Let’s discover a few fun facts and information about this once-a-year global celebration.
St. Patrick’s Day – A Brief History
St. Patrick’s Day is an annual celebration in observance of the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, which is celebrated on March 17. This date marks St. Patrick’s death in the year 461. It predominantly remembers St Patrick, one of Ireland’s patron saints, who ministered Christianity in Ireland during the fifth century. What began as a religious feast day in the 17th century has evolved into a variety of festivals across the globe celebrating Irish culture with parades, special foods, music, dancing, and a whole lot of green. Oh, for the love of Ireland!
On St. Patrick ’s Day, pinching someone not wearing green has become a tradition. It follows the old belief of revelers that wearing green made people invisible to leprechauns (fairy creatures who would pinch anyone they could see not wearing green). Henceforth, people have been accustomed to pinching other people who are not wearing green as a reminder that leprechauns would sneak up and pinch green-abstainers.
Furthermore, people believe that no one is luckier than the Irish. Not only because of their beliefs in lucky charms but as well as their fun, positive, and outgoing attitude which makes them even luckier. Nevertheless, whether you’re Irish or not, you can be as lucky as them. This St. Patrick’s Day, don’t just follow the masses and do as everyone else does. Celebrate it with a blast by adding an Irish-themed accessory to your green outfit – the St. Patrick’s Jamberry nail wraps collection.

- Next, peel off nail wrap and warm with a mini heater or blow-dryer for 3-5 seconds or until soft and flexible.
- After that, when warm, press the wrap onto the nail. Apply firm pressure around edges to adhere the wrap to the nail. Use rubber cuticle pusher to seal the wrap around the base of the cuticle.
- Then, trim the top with scissors and file off remaining wrap using a downward motion to remove excess.
- Finally, apply heat and pressure to the wrap again until it is bonded to the nail.
