According to Wikipedia, “shamrock” and “four-leaf clover” are not interchangeable terms. Shamrocks are the three-leaf variety most famous as a symbol of Ireland. The four-leaf clover, however, has a worldwide reputation for being lucky. Probably because for every 1 four-leaf clover, there are 10,000 three-leafers.
Tradition states that each leaf represents something: the first is for faith, the second is for hope, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck. Hmm, now where have I heard that before…
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13
