THE LEGEND OF THE LADYBUG

Legend has it that ladybugs are a symbol of good luck.
They received their name centuries ago when a village in France suffered from a plague of aphids. For 7 long years, very little rain fell and the tiny aphids would eat and destroy every green plant they could find. Fearing starvation, the farmers prayed to the Virgin Mary for help.

Soon thousands of strange looking beetles appeared and ate all the aphids. The farmers were so thankful to Our Lady's intercession that they named the beetles in honor of her – The beetles of Our Lady or ladybeetles which became ladybugs!

Nearly ALL cultures believe that a Ladybug is lucky! Killing one is said to bring sadness and misfortune.

If a Ladybug is held in the hand while making a wish,the direction that it flies away to shows where your luck will come from.

So, enjoy the shop and a little luck because you have found "Lucky Ladybug Designs"!
