Lucky Bamboo is kind of a misnomer; it doesn’t actually belong to the bamboo family. However, it is considered good luck and believed to bring happiness and prosperity. As the legend goes, placing the “bamboo” stalks in groupings of 3, 5 or 7, will bring about the most luck.
Goldfish have been considered lucky all the way back to the time of ancient Egyptians and ancient Greeks. In both cultures, goldfish were seen as lucky omens and kept as pets in homes.
