Pitching Horseshoes

Wirtz, Virginia - Today is billed as Horseshoe Day on several Internet websites. None tell why August 26 is Horseshoe Day. One site tells us "Horseshoes were invented by the Greeks and discovered by Western culture in the 4th century. Beyond their intended use, they became a universal symbol for good luck - a superstition that lasted well into the 1800s. The most popular practice was nailing a horseshoe over the front door of a house - pointed upward so the luck wouldn't fall out."

Anyway, Happy Horseshoe Day to The Daily Screw readers!
