It’s both 15 days till St. Patrick's Day and
your last chance to get in on Family Tree Magazine
’s March 2009 “Lucky Charms” All in the Family Challenge.
To enter, tell us about a lucky charm or superstition in your family
. For example, when I was a kid, whenever someone was getting married or we had a soccer tournament or good weather was needed for some other reason, Mom would set a figurine of Mary in the kitchen window (facing outside, or it wouldn't work).
Maybe you’ve saved Grandpa’s lucky penny or you throw a pinch of salt over your shoulder while cooking, just like Grandma always did.
Cross your fingers and describe your family’s lucky charm or superstition for us. E-mail your entry before March 9
, and be sure to include your name and hometown.
If we select your entry to publish in the July 2009 Family Tree Magazine
(knock on wood), you’ll win our Beginner’s Guide to Genealogy digital download
