Lesson Transcript

Spilling Salt
Did you know? It's believed in the U.S., that spilling salt will bring you bad luck.
Some people believe that it's bad luck because Judas is said to have spilled salt during the Last Supper, where he betrayed Jesus. Or more likely, it's considered bad luck because salt was an expensive commodity a long time ago.
In order to counteract the bad luck, it is said that you must throw salt over your left shoulder.
Whenever I spill salt though, I always forget if I'm supposed to throw salt over my left shoulder, or my right shoulder...
Lucky Penny
In the U.S., it's believed that if you find a penny face-up on the ground, meaning, the side with Abraham Lincoln's face on it, that you should pick it up.
It's long believed that metal and money bring more wealth. So if you find a penny face-up, it might mean that a guardian angel is watching over and protecting you.
Find a penny, pick it up, all day long, you'll have good luck!
