Are you superstitious, do you cringe in awe whenever Friday 13th descends, never walk under ladders and emphatically avoid putting up an umbrella indoors? Do you use superstition as a means to control your luck, or do you dismiss it as nonsense? Some people use superstition to make sense of coincidences, and some ascribe to them "just-in-case". As for me...I tend to believe it for luck. There are numerous superstitions in our modern world and varies greatly from one person to another. Here are some examples:

  • Some people turn back from a journey if a black cat crosses their path, although, some European countries (eg Britain) believe it's lucky to see a black cat.

  • Brides on their wedding day often do not see their groom until the ceremony, believing that to do so causes bad luck.

  • Many believe that if you can blow out all of the candles on your birthday cake with one breath while making a silent wish, your wish will come true. Also, many people believe that if you cause the knife to touch the bottom of your birthday cake while making the first cut in the cake, your wish will not come true.

  • It is also a common belief that breaking a mirror will bring 7 years of ill fortune.

  • Some believe that walking under a ladder will bring bad luck.

  • Opening an umbrella inside the house is purported to bring bad luck.

  • Entering a house left leg first is sometimes thought to bring bad luck.

  • Some people believe that if you give someone a handbag as a gift, you must place a coin in the handbag, otherwise the handbag will bring the recipient bad luck.

  • In theatre and drama it is considered bad luck to say "Good luck." "Break a leg." is substituted.

    "So you want to know me? Romantic and logical ~ Loyal and always true ~ Funloving crazy and very quiet when needed ~ Sensible and down to earth...to sum it up, I guess I'm pretty much a "nice girl", hopefully in a good way, who's also a bit of a geek"

    Here I am as perfect as I'm ever going to be. You'll see, love me for me. Stick around, I'm not the kind of girl you wanna leave. You'll see, love me for me.
