Chimney Sweep

* In Great Britain it is considered lucky for a bride to see a chimney sweep on her wedding day. Many modern British sweeps hire themselves out to attend weddings in pursuance of this tradition.

In Poland and Croatia chimney sweeps still wear the traditional all-black uniform with a black hat. It is considered good luck to rub or grasp one of your buttons if you pass one in the street.

As a Lucky symbol, depictions of chimney sweeps are a popular New Year's gift in Germany; either as small ornaments attached to flower bouquets or candy, e.g. marzipan chimney sweeps. Their traditional uniform is an all black suit with golden jacket buttons and a black tophat.
