A SIGN OF GOOD LUCK
To the Chinese and some Native American cultures,
the GRASSHOPPER is a symbol, an animal totem,
of good luck and abundance.
(A totem, usually an insect or animal, is a natural object
that is a symbol of some personal or spiritual identity.)
Grasshoppers have long been important spiritual symbols
in China, where they are sometimes kept as family pets.
Just to see one is a sign of good fortune and luck.
Behold the grasshopper -- a harbinger of good news and fortune.
Don't be afraid to leap, and remember:
grasshoppers only leap forward, never backward.
