Superstitions


Everyone has superstitions that they believe in from opening umbrella's inside to walking under ladders and black cats crossing their path. The only one I really have is the opening umbrella's inside. I cringe when I see someone doing that or if I find one layng around on the floor at work in the kids department. {I work in retail, lol} Superstitions are commonly associated with the beliefs of good and bad luck, as well as the predictions of the future. 
Here are some common superstitions everyone has heard of...
* Friday 13th : This is supposed to be an unlucky day. There are some who refuse to leave the house on this day and most places don't acknowledge a 13th floor or room. ** Personally I have always had wonderful luck on Friday 13th's. **
* Rabbits Feet bring good luck? In many cultures rabbits were considered to be associated with prosperity and good luck so therefore keeping one of it's feet was also considered to bring good luck.
* An apple a day keeps the doctor away : These tasty treats contain Vitamin C. They also aid the immune system, and reduce tooth decay by cleaning one's teeth and killing off the bacteria that has built up on your teeth.
* To find a four-leaf clover is to find good luck : The four leaves on the clover represent faith, love, hope and luck. The clover was also used to ward off evil.
* If a black cat crosses your path you will have bad luck : Egyptians once considered cats to be sacred. Depending on the countries will depend on the superstition. ** I have a black cat and have never had any sort of bad luck while owning one.**
** If you walk under a ladder, you will have bad luck : I'm not really superstitious about this one. I just prefer not to walk under them because one can get hurt by doing so. **
