Good Luck Charms

The luck found in a Wishbone comes from cultures believing birds (and feathers) to be symbolic of the divine. In ancient Italy, the Etruscans believed birds were oracles that could tell the future. In hopes of gaining some of a bird's divine powers, after preparing their chicken for dinner, Etruscans would leave the furcula bone in the sun to dry out. If a villager found a dried bone, they would gently stroke it while making a wish. thus, the name Wishbone.
Horseshoes used to be hung above a door as a measure of protection. Some take it further, believing that the ends must point up so it creates a container to catch and hold any good luck moving past.
Wearing three keys together is good luck because together they unlock the doors to health, wealth, and love.
