Superstitious Saturday Penny

Superstitious Saturday Penny

Pennies are often a major player in superstitions. For example, if you receive a sharp object, like a knife or pair of scissors as a gift, you must reciprocate by giving a penny back – or bad luck will follow.

Then there’s the notion that if you see a penny lying on the ground, picking it up will bring good luck. But then, some say that you only pick it up if heads are showing, otherwise turn it over and leave it for someone else to find.

Simply carrying a penny is good luck, and throwing one overboard before an ocean voyage insures a good trip. Keeping a jar of pennies in the kitchen is good luck.

There are lots of superstitions surrounding pennies. But why? Here is an article that lists the possible reasons: https://www.rd.com/culture/why-are-pennies-lucky/.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Superstitious Secret #202:
“Pennies are a common good luck object.”
