MAY 23rd | TODAY IS:
NATIONAL LUCKY PENNY DAY – I am not overly superstitious but I did consider pennies lucky … back when we had pennies. I would see a penny, recite the lucky penny poem in my head, and pocket the penny. I had a friend once who would strategically place the penny so that another person would find it and have good luck.
Canada began phasing out the one cent coin in 2012. At cash registers, the math rules of rounding have become the norm. With the advent of debit transactions and increased use of credit cards, I have not missed the penny at all. In fact, my wallet is lighter without all of the copper-coloured coins.
If you can, find a penny today and have good luck all day long.
