Luck is a form of superstition which is interpreted differently by different persons. I think that the luck is a temporally coincident occurrence of causal events. It is an effect of collective unconscious.
In the oldest culture in America practical religions, such as the Aztecs, Mayans and Inca, had particularly strong beliefs regarding the relationship between ritual and luck. In these cultures, human sacrifice seen as a way to please gods and earn favor for the city offering the sacrifice. The Mayans also believed in blood offerings, where men or women want to earn favor with the gods, to bring about good luck, for example with the good production in your farm.
