World Find a Four Leaf Clover Day

Four Leaf Clover

About World Find a Four Leaf Clover Day

Date When Celebrated: Four Leaf Clover Day is always Celebrated on August 2

Today just might be your lucky day. It is World Find a Four Leaf Clover Day. On this day, your sole objective is to find a four leaf clover. According to Irish folklore, four leaf clovers will bring you good luck. And, we all could use a little of that. Your search is a daunting one. It is estimated that only 1 in 10,000 clover leaves are four-leaved. However, it's the beginning of August and life slows down at this time of the year. The days are long and the weather is superb. There's not  a lot of other things on your calendar this month. So, spending an extended amount of time sprawled out on your lawn with a magnifying glass, is the perfect way to enjoy the picture perfect summer weather.

And so, the search is on. One of the great things about this search, is that everybody can get lucky. Everyone can participate, too. All it takes is for each of us to find our own four leaf clover. Sorry, there is no sharing. You must find one all for yourself. And, you can't hire or coerce someone else to find it for you. You need to find it yourself. Otherwise, the magic of the four leaf clover will not occur.

Participation in this day is easy. And, it's fun. Head outside and search for a four leaf clover. Clovers can be found almost anywhere. Your backyard is a great place to start. If you don't find one in your yard, parks, schoolyards and fields are also good places to search. You might even find one growing in the cracks of the sidewalk. You can conduct your search by yourself, or with friends. Or, you can hold a "Find a Four Leaf Clover" party. Invite a group of friends. Offer snacks and beverages. And, certainly offer a prize to anyone who finds one.    

Did You Know? Clover plants make great indoor houseplants. They grow well in partial shade and do not require a lot of attention.

Clover Day

History and Origin of World Find a Four Leaf Clover  Day:

World Find a Four Leaf Clover Day was created in 2022 by Bob Matthews of HolidayInsghts.com

It is titled as a "world" day as clovers are growing all over the world. And, people all over the world will have fun looking for a four leaf clover.

This day was created for a number of reasons. First, humans always have hope. It drives us forward and keeps us optimistic that our lives will be happy and good. Certainly, finding a lucky four leaf clover will help us to achieve our dreams. This day was selected, as it is the perfect thing to do on a lazy summer day. And, mid-summer just seems to be a great time to go outdoors for a "treasure hunt". This holiday can be enjoyed by everyone.

Matthews says he creates very few holidays himself. Certainly, this uplifting day was just waiting to be created. Matthews went on to say he was amazed no one thought to create this special day.
