Do you ever wonder why so many kitchen items feature roosters? Everything from canisters to casserole dishes, potholders to pictures, and spoon holders to salt and pepper shakers.
A rooster in the kitchen brings you good luck - plain and simple! This belief is pretty universal around the world. Many countries relate fables wherein the rooster features prominently as the bringer of good luck to some situation or other. So common superstition says you would be well-advised to add one to your kitchen paraphernalia - if you haven't brought got one already! Check your kitchen - there is probably one lurking somewhere, as people often gift kitchen roosters in the form of towels, utensils, dishes or other kitchen do-dads ... they might even be worked into your tiles. I actually relish the day when the "sterile" stainless steel kitchen trend comes to an end ... and colour and variety returns. Then not only the humble kitchen rooster - but all those lovely French Provencal blues, yellows, reds and whites - can make a well-deserved comeback in kitchen tiles, counter tops and floors.
But in the meantime, why not incorporate a rooster into your kitchen decor to bring good luck and good fortune into your home. You'll get all of the benefit ... without any of the early morning cock-a-doodle-doing!
