The Good Luck Book Author:Stefan Bechtel & Laurence Roy Stains Sprinkle nutmeg on your lottery tickets. Put some money in the pockets of a new suit before wearing it. Carry a Virginia fairy cross, like Charles "lucky" Lindbergh. Walk up a flight of stairs backwards. Eat sauerkraut on New Year's Day. And if you accidentally put an article of clothing on wrong side out, wear it that way all day long. Good luck!
