I wonder what the chances are of seeing any chimney sweeps when we're in Germany this spring?
I actually had that happen to me in Italy... not so lucky, though, since I was waiting for an overnight train when it happened, and wouldn't get to shower for close to 24 hours. There's only so clean hair can get in a train station restroom. Yuck!
Not sure if I'd prefer that, or the "lucky" rain of a Hindu wedding. Hmmm. (See a few more international lucky wedding traditions here.)
There are also about a buzzillion statues around the world whose toes, noses, tummies, or -ahem- other parts, get rubbed for good luck.
Have you stumbled across any good luck signs, statues, or traditions in your travels?
