SUPERSTITIONS

Are you superstitious? I'm not, except that I'd never walk under a ladder.

I was thinking of all the superstitious sayings I've heard and laughed at how silly they are. Please feel free to add ones you've heard of. Some I remember are, and I'm sure I'll think of more, are:

Break a glass, seven years of bad luck.
Step on a crack, break your Mother's back.
Don't walk under a ladder.
Never open an umbrella over your head inside.
Bad luck if a black cat crosses your path.

Don't forget

Knocking on wood
Throwing salt over your shoulder

bad things come in threes

red sky in the morning, sailors take warning; red sky at night, sailors' delight

cows lying down in a field = rain

carry a rabbit's foot for good luck

Theater superstions:

No whistling, in the dressing room.
Never put a hat on a bed.
Do NOT say "good luck" - say "break a leg". This will confuse the evil spirits, who might jinx a performance.

Never sing at the dinner table - causes bad luck.

Put a piece of clothing on backwards or inside out you have to take it off and wear something else. (if not it's suppose to cause bad luck)

I learned it that the cows lying down in the field means that the fish aren't biting, and if they're grazing, they are .

I seem to remember reading somewhere that the "Red sky at night ..." saying actually has some basis in fact, something about dust being pushed in front of a high-pressure system or something.

Oh, Oh, Oh, I thought of another:

If you find a string on a peice of clothing it means you're supposed to get a letter!

(P.S.: I guess my mailman is holding up on the delivery at my house. )

- If your ears are burning, that means someone is talking about you.
- If your palms are itchy, it means you're coming into money.....
- If you feel a spirit or ghost around, don't look over your left shoulder (I have no idea where that one came from!!!)
- If you drop silverware on the floor, someone is coming to visit you.

I do practice the knocking on wood, and not looking over my left shoulder. I also wave at yellow traffic lights if I accidently go through them (I don't feel right if I don't).

when your eye sorta bubbles it means someone is tlaking about you

dont open an umbrella in the house
friday 13th
if you wear clothes inside out it means good luck.
One palm is itchy dont know which side means someone is coming to the door and the other side is money.

If a fork falls on the floor it means a woman is coming over, if a knife falls over it means a man is coming over.

Put shoes on the table or bed means bad luck unles they are still in a box
Umm there are loads more, my mother is very supersticious lol

I know I'm not. I got a black cat for crying out loud!!

In some ways. I'm scared of Friday the 13th, and I think black dogs are bad luck. (I got bit by one when I was 12)

I also think breaking a mirror is bad luck. (You have to pay for it, and broken glass can hurt you)
