The Story of The Lucky Chimney Sweep
To see a chimney sweep on your wedding day is a sign of good luck. This long held tradition dates back 200 years when King George III was riding his horse in a royal procession. A stray dog began nipping the horse’s legs. Without warning, the horse reared up and lost control. The crowd looked on in horror. Out of the blue a fearless chimney sweep appeared and regained control of the horse, thus saving the King’s life. As quickly as he had arrived, the humble chimney sweep vanished again.
After the procession the King was so thankful for the bravery of this chimney sweep. Unable to thank the sweep personally, the King decreed that from that day onwards all chimney sweeps would be bearers of good luck. Later, King George’s youngest daughter was to be married. The King sent for the chimney sweep who had saved him as he believed this would bring his daughter good luck and happiness in her marriage.
So the folklore was established and to this day chimney sweeps are still invited to attend special events to ensure good luck.
