12 Good Luck Charms You Might Already Have In Your House

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, here are a few lesser-known good luck charms that are (mostly) easy to get ahold of.

8. A Redhead

Rubbing the head of a person with red hair is said to be good luck, but redheads themselves are also said to be terrible luck on certain specific occasions, like "meet[ing] a redhead on the first morning in May."

9. White Socks / Via

White socks might not seem especially meaningful, but they're One Direction member Niall Horan's good luck charm, and he seems to be doing okay. (A note: this site also claims to know Mr. Horan's penis length down to the hundredth decimal place, so, it might not be trustworthy. Or it's ESPECIALLY trustworthy??)

11. Bezoar

OK so you might not already have this item (which is a ball of undigested hair and food fiber from "the gut of an animal") in your house already, and if so, ew? But if you can get one, it's lucky, and if you're Ron Weasley, it might save you someday.

12. A Raccoon Penis Bone

Again, you might not have this on hand. I don't know what your house is like. The animal penis bone in general is called a baculum, but you'll need the baculum of a raccoon if you want your penis bone to count for anything. It'll bring you good luck and fertility.
