What is your lucky charm?

Is there something you never leave home without - an everyday object that to you is a lucky charm?

Do you always have to wear your lucky pants when you play football?

Maybe you bought a talisman for good health and wellbeing that is now dangling from your key ring. Maybe it is a stone from the beach where you proposed to your wife.

Despite living in a far less superstitious age, huge numbers of us still carry round common place objects that have a personal significance and if we are forced to admit it - bring a feeling of luck and comfort.

BBC News is taking a light-hearted look at these modern charms and would like to hear from people about their own lucky mascots.
