When it comes to happiness, Millennials are surprisingly more superstitious than any other generation, with nearly half (48%) owning a lucky charm, compared to just 24% of Gen X and 17% of baby boomers. Most lucky item owners count a piece of jewelry or a coin (19%) as the lucky item, but surprisingly 10% have lucky underwear.

But it seems that there is an area that the British can agree on. An overwhelming majority chose number 7 (12%) as their lucky number, with number 13 – for some, bad luck! – in second place (4%).

There are many reasons Brits might choose number 7 as their lucky number. There are seven days a week, seven colors in the rainbow and of course Snow White and the seven dwarfs. It’s also the code number of James Bond and the kit that both David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo wore for many years.
