As we approach what's considered one of the luckiest days on the calendar year, let's take a look at some of the luckier lore associated with everyday items that we might today take for granted, like salt. There are all kinds of luck legends affiliated with this spice. In fact, in ancient times salt wasn't nearly as common as it is today. Salt was once so hard to procure that it was considered a highly valued commodity. Think about it. When we describe a slacker we might refer to them as 'someone not worth their salt.' Or when describing something unbelievable we might advise to 'take it with a grain of salt.' In fact, during ancient times, workers were often paid with salt, which is where we get our own modern day word 'salary.' Grab a pinch or two of sea salt and place it in a plastic bag. Now, clean the clutter out of your wallet and place the sea salt in a secret compartment. The promise inherent is that this salt will now pepper your life with financial luck and largesse. Go ahead and shake up your bottom line today. You'll be more than happy you did tomorrow.
