If you’re buying scissors as a Christmas gift – don’t forget the penny!

Giving scissors or knives as a gift is considered bad luck in many parts of the world. No-one is sure where this superstition originated, but it is thought that a knife or pair of scissors as a gift will “cut the friendship” between giver and receiver. Traditionally knives and scissors given as a gift should always have a penny attached, which the recipient promptly gives back to the giver as a “payment” for the knife, thereby preserving their relationship (and fingers).
