The notion that chimney sweeps are the agents of good fortune is an old European tradition. In many European countries chimney sweeps wore all-black uniforms with a black or white hat. A chimney sweep’s jacket often had 13 buttons for luck. The superstition holds that it is good luck to touch them, wiping a fingertip across their sooty sleeves, or, when seeing them from a distance, to touch a button and make a wish.
