Posted by Nikkolette's Macarons on 10th Mar 2023
As St. Patrick's Day approaches, many of us are getting into the spirit by sporting green attire and searching for lucky four leaf clovers. But have you ever wondered about the origins of this beloved symbol of good fortune?
Legend has it that Saint Patrick himself used the three-leaf shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity to the Irish people he was trying to convert to Christianity. But it wasn't until later that the four leaf clover came to be associated with luck.
According to Irish folklore, finding a four leaf clover is said to bring good luck and fortune to the finder. Each leaf of the clover is believed to represent something: faith, hope, love, and luck. It's a symbol that has come to be synonymous with St. Patrick's Day and is often used in decorations, clothing, and accessories.
