My Top 5 “Lucky” Experiences

Thursday is St. Patrick’s Day and it’s got me thinking about the concept of luck. It’s a strange one. What does it mean to be lucky, to have bad luck or good luck?

Still, nothing can beat the numbers for last year’s lucky number seven — 07/07/07, which had 70,000 online-registered weddings on those websites.
