Everyone has heard of the luck of the Irish, but as good luck symbols go, the four leaf clover is one of the most universally recognized. Popular belief holds that one leaf is for faith, the second for hope, the third for love and the fourth for luck! According to legend, Eve carried a four leaf clover from the Garden of Eden. White clover was held in high esteem by the early Celts of Wales as a charm against evil spirits. The mystique of the four leaf clover continues today, since finding a real four leaf clover is still a rare occurrence and omen of good luck. It is claimed that there are 8,000-10,000 three-leaf clovers for every four-leaf clover, making them a true  natural phenomenon.
