Trunk Up or Trunk Down?
There are many superstitions associated with the elephant, but their ability to bring good luck is captured in the replicas of elephants and the trunk plays a major role in superstitions regarding elephants. Some people believe the trunks up bring good luck. Others believe the trunk down will bring good luck. Western cultures are most familiar with the trunk up as good luck; however in Thailand, the elephant itself is considered good luck regardless of the trunk being up or down.Â So take your pick; Up, Down, or Who Cares. Â But for those who are superstitious you may not be able to persuade those of the opposite of what they believe the elephantâ €š ¬ €ž ¢s trunk signifies as regards to good luck.
