Three really is a magic number! Numerology and luck are often linked, but no number has been so widely celebrated as a symbol of good fortune. Three is the first number that forms a geometric shape (triangle), and is considered sacred in many religions and cultures. In Christianity, the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit is a powerful triad. The lovely Fleur-de-Lis (“flower of light”) is adorned with three petals and is considered a symbol of the Trinity. The Rosetta Stone includes inscriptions in three languages: Egyptian, Hieroglyphic and Classical Greek. The Viking Valknut is comprised of three interlocked triangles and is a symbol for the dead slain in battle. Only three colors, red, yellow and blue are needed to mix most other colors. In fairy tales, the protagonist is often offered three choices or three tests, and they overcome difficulties on the third try. Suffice it to say that the third time really is a charm!
