What's the difference between a leaf and a rock?
The stories are in silver and gold. Is there 4 leaf clovers? Why do people wear green on St Patrick's day, and what is the difference between a Lucky Clover and a Shamrock? Shamrock is derived from the Irish word "seamrog" meaning little clover. The number of leaves is the most obvious difference between the two plants. If you've ever found a Four Leaf Clover, you've been lucky as only one can be found in every 10,000 three leaf clovers. They're considered lucky because each leaf has a special meaning. The Celtic charms of Four Leaf Clovers and Shamrocks have been around for hundreds of years. The Celtic lucky number is 3. St Patrick illustrated the Trinity through the three leaves of the shamrock. "If a man walking in the fields finds any four leafed grass, he shall in a small while after find some good thing." was written in 1620. You go back out to the field with some tools. There is something but... Why are you wearing green on St Patrick's Day? It is a 17th century tradition to make you invisible to leprechauns who pinch anyone they can see. In many countries, non green wearing people are pinched to remind them that there are still leprechauns.
