1. Horseshoe

Possibly the most famous of these charms is the horseshoe. Believed to repel witches from entering your house, as well as to bring good luck to all who pass, the horseshoe must be hung above your front door and may either be nailed facing up or down. This belief originated from 16th century English folklore and horseshoes continues to greet visitors to homes around the world.
