The Lucky Chimney Sweep Tradition
Since pagan times, the images of fire and the hearth have been associated with luck - when a new bride inherited the fire-irons, she symbolically inherited a home and a new family. It's because of his blackened face and his relationship with hearths and fires that the chimney sweep carries the luck with him where ever he goes, and when you meet him, his luck rubs off onto you.
Coal, again connected with fire and hearths, is also believed to be lucky. When given by a sweep the luck is multiplied. Soldiers have carried small lumps of coal into battle to ensure survival, and sailors kept coal in their pockets while at sea.
Over the centuries it has been considered Good Luck if a Bride sees a Chimney Sweep on her Wedding Day. Luckier still if he greets the Bride with a kiss and shakes the Groom’s hand as they emerge from the Wedding Venue.
