- - Crazy Grils (Las Vegas)
If you visit Las Vegas and good luck comes your way, you can leave there changing your life completely. One of the traditions to attract fortune in Las Vegas is at the Rivera Hotel and it is to touch the butt of one of the seven Crazy Girls sculpted in bronze at the entrance to ensure a good day when entering the casino.
It is a life-size sculpture of seven women embracing and with their backs turned, the statue was unveiled in 1997 and has been said to bring good luck in gambling ever since.
- - The Heart of Midlothian (Edinburgh, UK)
A curious custom to attract luck is the one found in the capital of Scotland, the tradition indicates that travelers who visit the cathedral and see a heart of cobblestones on the sidewalk should spit on the figure to attract fortune.
The legend of this place indicates that in this place there was an old jail where executions were also carried out, this jail was demolished in 1817. By spitting on the figure, the rejection of what happened in the place is manifested and the gesture is rewarded with good luck.
- - The Trevi Fountain (Rome, Italy)
This is the most famous fountain in the Italian capital and the one that arouses more interest among those who come to the city, the ritual to attract luck is to throw a coin into its waters and ask for wishes to be fulfilled. This tradition began in 1954 with the movie Three Coins in the Fountain.
But don't think it's about throwing the coin and making the wish, no. It is a matter of doing it, but for the wishes to be fulfilled, the coin must be tossed with the back to the fountain and thrown with the right hand and passing over the left shoulder. If it is done according to the ritual, you will return to the city. If you are looking for love, you should throw two coins and if the objective is marriage you should throw three, or a divorce: it is also accepted.
