Souvenirs from Slovenia

lucky horseshoe

"A superstition lasts more than a religion." Theophile Gautier Horseshoes are probably the most well-known good luck charm or symbol in the Western World. The horseshoe has a long history of being a protective symbol. Amulets and talismans, in the popular belief have the funcion of protection from evil, attracting the luck, happiness or making happen an event particulary desired. Are common to all cultures of our civilization, ancient objects, the use of which is lost in the mists of time. Iron is a strong metal which withheld fire. This gave a strong resemblance of strength, power, reliability and durability. However the horseshoe if hanged on a wall, or somewhere else, to work must always be in an upward position ("U"). Tuching it brings good luck and riches, but it does not have to be new, it must belong or be lost by the horse. This is why many people in contemporary society prefer giving out gifts that have horseshoe on them. It may be at a wedding or even a birthday. It can also be a gift idea for newborn baby or a top gift for children of all ages. Apparently, only real, used horseshoes are the lucky ones....the horse strikes luck into them as they walk. Because of that, all unique "lucky horseshoes" are used.
