Superstitions

superstitionsAssume there is real magic behind superstitions. Pick a superstition and tell why it works. Here's a selection if you need one. (There were too many to choose from! ;-)
  • Meeting a dog - good luck (especially Dalmatians)
  • Naming a bear - provokes attack
  • To hide in a bull's pen - immunity from lightning
  • A cat washing on the doorstep - the clergy will visit
  • Good Luck: Sneezing 3 times before breakfast
  • Good Luck: Looking at the new moon over your right shoulder
  • Good Luck: Putting a dress on inside out
  • Good Luck: Golfers can have a successful day on the course if they start their round with odd numbered clubs and don't use balls with numbers higher than 4
  • See a penny, pick it up; all day long you will have good luck.
  • Bad Luck: If pepper is spilt, then you will have a serious argument with a friend.
  • Bad Luck: Sparrows are said to carry the souls of the deceased to the after-life. To kill one means that you will be cursed.
  • Bad Luck: Never mend a garment while you are wearing it, or misfortune will follow.
  • Bad Luck: New shoes should never be left on a table
Superstitions are from Old Superstitions
