8 Plants for Good Luck
It’s March, and you know what that means! Green stuff, shamrocks, and leprechauns are coming. This holiday celebrates the Patron Saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick, who converted Pagans to Christianity in the 5th century. Saint Patrick’s Day isn’t really about luck, but somewhere along the way, as with most holidays, it got distilled down into its very basics: Ireland. Green. Good luck.
(PS. The four leaf clover, which symbolizes good luck, is not the same as the shamrock, which is a symbol of Saint Patrick and has only three leaves).
If you want to bring a little good luck into your home this Saint Patrick’s Day, look no further than your old pals Max and Miles!
