Lucky Penny Day

Lucky Penny Day

When: Always on May 23rd

It's Lucky Penny Day. Perhaps a Lucky Penny will be lucky for you today.

Taken at face value, a penny doesn't buy you much, if anything. It used to. During your parents and grandparents days, a penny bought a lot of things. Most notably, Penny Candy got its name because a piece of candy cost a penny. Inflation year after year after year, eroded the penny's value. There has even been some discussion as to whether to discontinue the penny....Heaven forbid!

The penny still serves a very useful purpose... at least some of them are lucky pennies. Lucky pennies are found on the ground. Not all of the pennies you find will be lucky. But, it will only take one lucky penny used to scratch off the mega winner on a a scratch-off ticket.

Are you superstitious? Superstition has it that you should only pick up a penny that is lying face up.

Here are some other uses for pennies:

A penny for your thoughts.
To put your "two cents" in.
A necessity for penny pinchers
A handy screwdriver when nothing else is available.
Thought: for Today: "A penny for your thoughts."

Origin of Lucky Penny Day:
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
