“La­dy­bugs (also known by other names like lady­bird and la­dy­bee­tle) were named for the Vir­gin Mary. Their seven spots were said to sym­bol­ise her seven sor­rows and seven joys. But so much other lore is as­so­ci­ated with la­dy­bugs – luck, boun­ti­ful crops, fair weather, and the driv­ing away of sad­ness.”
