Every country has its own take on good and bad luck, but few are as wide-ranging and exciting as that of Brazil. As a nation with strong cultural heritage not just within Rio, but the country as a whole, it was inevitable that there would be a few aspects held as charms of luck, for good or for evil. So read on to get a sense of what you should look out for, and maybe you'll be able to make your next day out all the more fortunate.
To start on a positive note, gaining good luck should probably be a safe jumping-off point. As something you can wear anywhere, a Figa charm is probably a good place to start. As Betway explains, these have been designed to help repel negative energy, while at the same time they store unused luck for when it is later needed. Don't just go out and purchase these for yourself; however, as to work properly, these should only be taken as a gift. As a bonus, these also happen to be attractive enough to be worn around proudly, which makes it just that much easier to receive their proposed benefits.
Moving onto the animal kingdom, we have some of the best-loved insects which stand as a symbol of luck not just in Brazil, but in many countries the world over. Specifically, these are white butterflies, though entomology enthusiasts should be aware that to qualify for good luck there are conditions. According to Culture Trip, this can only be gained if you manage to see a while butterfly as the first you see in a new year. Those dedicated could consider spending their new year’s celebrations close to gardens, to reap good luck as soon as possible.
