The word “Luck” is said to be derived from an old Anglo-Saxon verb meaning “to catch” and therefore signifies something caught. I choose to believe the hawk means I will have good luck this year.
Such a derivation seems reasonable in view of the fact that prosperity is thought by many to be dependent on fleeting opportunities that must be seized in passing. So I think the creeper zipping through the yard means I should keep my eye out for new possibilities.
Happy New Year to all!
