It is said that a blacksmith named Dunstan was once asked to attach horseshoes to a man he believed to be the devil. He did so, and when the devil cried out in pain, he captured him. He let him go on the understanding that the devil would never set foot in a Christian building again. He would know which homes to avoid as they would have a horseshoe hanging above their door. Dunstan became the Archbishop of Canterbury soon after, and is now known as Saint Dunstan. It is now considered very lucky to have a horseshoe above the door.

Recognized as lucky charms the crescent shaped metal talisman is believed to also guard off the evil eye. Legend stems from a story of the Archbishop of Canterbury. St. Dunstan. Once a blacksmith, he was asked by a cloaked horseman to re-shoe him rather than his horse. The blacksmith knew only of one person with cloven heels for feet; the devil himself. St. Dunstan saw this as an opportunity to protect his brethren. With a red hot poker the blacksmith tortured the devil until he agreed never to step foot into a household with a horseshoe.
