May 23rd Lucky Penny Day

The penny isn’t what it use to be, but then who of us are? The penny use to have a lot more value than it does today. In fact, governments are eliminating the penny in many economies because they aren’t worth the money the materials cost to make it and even penny candy that use to make children happy is lie 50 cents now! (If you are lucky enough to find it!) There are many theories of what makes a penny lucky, the one most common to me is when you find a penny on the ground. If the penny is on heads, pick it up and it brings you luck. (But you can’t spend it) If it is on tails, just leave it where it lay.

How to celebrate – Go around looking for pennies on the ground. (Have a partner watch that you don’t run into anything.) “A penny saved is worth a penny earned”. “A penny for your thoughts”
