The Lucky Chimney Sweep Tradition.

Good Luck is sure to rub off when the groom shakes hands with a Lucky Chimney

Sweep who will have a "Lucky Kiss" for the new bride. With the power vested in

him by King George II, following a tradition that started about 200 years ago

when a London chimney sweeper saved the life of King George II. The sweep

had been the only person brave enough to stop the King's out of control horses and


By Royal Decree the King proclaimed that all sweeps are good luck bearers and

should be treated with respect. The folklore was established and to this day chimney

sweepers are invited to attend weddings and kiss the bride for good luck.

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.
