Shamrocks? 4-Leaf Clovers? There is a Difference!

According to St. Patrick’s Day lore, Patrick used the “three” leaves of a shamrock to explain the holy trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Today, St. Patrick’s Day revelers wear a shamrock out of tradition; the people of Ireland, here in the U.S and “across the pond,” wear an authentic shamrock for good luck and as a symbol of their heritage.

Ever find a four-leaf clover? The Druids believed that a four-leaf clover could help in spotting witches or other demons. Some modern-day spiritualists claim that a four-leaf clover releases energy and helps one’s judgment. Yet, others feel that finding a four-leaf clover brings good fortune, not just on St. Patrick’s Day, but everyday!
