  What makes you lucky?
Updated 07 January 2004, 18.47

Researchers have found that lucky charms DO work.

But what makes you lucky?

Do you have a lucky pair of socks you have to wear during a football match?

Or maybe you have a mascot you take into exams with you?

Is there a special number you always pick?

Whatever your story, e-mail and let us know - especially if your lucky charm works!

Unfortunately this topic is now closed but there are Comments pages on other subjects on the main Chat index.
