Origins of Good Luck Charms Four-Leaf Clovers

About the origin of the good luck charm the four-leaf clover, ties with Biblical history.

Four-leaf clover. When Adam and Eve were evicted from the Garden of Eden, Eve snatched a 4-leaf clover (which were plentiful in the Garden) as a remembrance of her days in Paradise. Also, the rarity of the plant (at one time) contributed to its value, although seeds which grow only 4-leaf clovers are now available. One old saying on the luck of the clover: "One leaf for fame,/One leaf for wealth,/And one leaf for a faithful lover,/And one leaf to bring glorious health,/Are all in a 4-leaf clover."
