Peruvian Good Luck Packets
The charming Peruvian Good Luck Packet is meant to be carried to protect and bless the individual carrying it.
The red seed is an huayruro seed, which is believed to bring good luck to the holder. The tiny wheat seeds represent the abundance of food. The miniature broom is the symbol of San Martin de Porres, a saint from Lima, Peru. San Martin is honored throughout Latin America as a protector of children and the impoverished.
Prominent in the little good luck amulet is the medal of a saint. The medals vary, and we never know who will be honored, as they arrive assorted.
