Get an acid-free photo page. Place the shamrock in it. Cut the page down to the size of whatever picture frame you've got. Place it in the frame, and hang it up or set in on a shelf.

A shamrock is a three leafed clover.

Now you can laugh at people who put up St. Patrick's Day decorations with four leaf clovers on them. See, the whole point of associating the shamrock with St. Patrick's Day and Ireland is that St. Patrick used it to teach about the trinity (three parts, one whole, blah blah blah).

I had a Trinity on St Pat's day once, but it was one part Irish whiskey, one part Scotch whiskey and one part English ale. Them three parts made a heck of a hole in my gut too!

So does the four leaf clover have anything to do with the "luck of the Irish"?

I found a 4 leaf clover in the middle of my high school football game.

it was 2nd and goal and we were going in to take the lead. I looked down between the hands of the DT in front of me saw the clover. I told my self that if we scored I'd grab it. I made my block and felt the pile on top of me. My RB went up and over the pile to score.

I found the clover and handed it to one of the cheerleaders to hold for me. I had it in wax papper in my wallet for close to 5 years after that until I lost my wallet one day.

Not really sure how much actual good luck it ever gave me thou. It was cool to show off to people.

Sort of, but it preceded them. The Druids believed that the four-leaf clover protected the holder against nasty spirits.

Used to find 4,5,6,7 and 8 leafs clovers at my old house. Must have had some mutant strain of clover growing there.
