Did you know that horseshoes have long been considered lucky? For centuries, horseshoes have been viewed as good luck charms in Ireland and across Europe. Some historians believe the folklore behind the horseshoe dates back to 10th century England. Dunstan, a bishop that was later canonized as a saint, was said to have been visited by the devil.
Being a blacksmith, Dunstan had apparently nailed a horseshoe to one of the devil’s hooves. Folklore legend has it that Dunstan had only agreed to relieve the devil of his pain from the horseshoe on the condition he never entered the home of anyone with a horseshoe on their door.
These days, the horseshoe is often thought of as a lucky talisman in many cultures, both in Ireland and beyond.
