The Spanish can already relate to the concept of lucky pants, they do after all have a tradition of wearing red underwear on New Year’s Eve. I think most of us have a pair of lucky pants somewhere in our past or even still in our cupboard and Bridget Jones famously had “magic stomach-sucking-in granny knickers” for her hot date with Daniel Cleaver in the book “Bridget Jones’ Diary” (they worked, just in case you were wondering). But we also pull on our big girl pants when we have to do something difficult.
