Anyone IRISH ? IFa FOUR LEAF CLOVER is GOOD LUCK, WHY are there only three leafs shown on everything sold !?

Best Answer:

Douglas: Im Irish, and the legends with the clovers go like this,
A one leaf clover is for faith
A two leaf clover is for hope
A three leaf clover is for love
A four leaf clover is for luck.
The four leaf clover is a universally accepted symbol of good luck with its origin ages old. According to legend, Eve carried a four leaf clover from the Garden of Eden.
The significance invested in four leaf clovers pre-dates Christianity, going back to the pagan period, when four leaf clovers were Celtic charms.
Celtic dominance once extended across Ireland and much of Western Europe. It was the Druids (Celtic priests) who elevated four leaf clovers to the status of Celtic charms, allegedly potent against malevolent spirits.They believed that the four leaves on a clover represented the elements(Earth, Wind, Fire and Water) Their status as Celtic charms is the origin of the modern belief in their power to bestow good luck. Because four leaf clovers are so rare to find, it is believed that the finder will have luck bestowed on them.The leaves on a three leaf clover are understood to represent the Holy Trinity (The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit).Because four leaf clovers are so rare to find, it is believed that the finder will have luck bestowed on them, maybe thats why everything sold is three leaf, because a four leaf clover is a rarity.
