Actually, Wishbone isn't giving lucky tips, more like he's giving us a little history lesson. About luck. We'll take it, we're lucky he's awake and willing to write his column at all.
The four leaf clover represents fame, wealth, health and faithful love. There are many variations of clover that have four leaves, but the lucky ones come from the white clover plant, also called Trifolium repens. True four-leaf clovers are rare, with only about one in 10,000 plants carrying the lucky leaves.
Horseshoes are lucky because they were traditionally made of iron. Mischievous fairies could not stand the touch of iron, so they shied away from houses that were adorned with it. So they say.
Some cultures say that if a ladybug lands on you and you don't brush it off, your luck will improve.
The number seven has special mathematical properties. The ancient Greeks called 7 "the perfect number," the sum of 3 (triangle) and 4 (square), which are perfect forms.

The following interesting March facts were found at www.rd.com/culture/month-of-march-facts.
March was actually named for the Latin Martius—aka Mars, the Roman God of war and a mythical ancestor of the Roman people via his wolf-suckling sons, Romulus and Remus. With the winter frosts melting and the ground becoming fertile for harvest again in the Northern hemisphere, March was historically the perfect month for both farmers to resume farming, and warriors to resume warring.
Incidentally, the Pentagon still seems to agree with this Roman tradition: with the exception of the recent War on Afghanistan, almost all major US-NATO led military operations since the invasion of Vietnam have begun in the month of March. You can see a full list here, but to name a few: Vietnam (initiated March 8, 1965), Iraq (March 20, 2003), and Libya (March 19, 2011) all follow the trend.
