#4-Are you superstitious?

Are you superstitious?

I am not a bit superstitious. I think it’s a bunch of hooey.


But…I kinda sorta admit I left the number 13 totally off the heading of my 13th chapter. (Not because I believe in bad luck or anything…)

Lots of people definitely are totally superstitious. Here’s a list of common superstitions:

• Friday the thirteenth is an unlucky day.
• Beginners will always have good luck.
• Don’t let cats near babies. They suck breath the breath right out of them.black-cat
• Rabbit’s feet are good luck.
• Find a penny, pick it up. And all day long, you’ll have good luck.
• There’s a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
• Cross your fingers to avoid bad luck.
• If a black cat crosses your path, you will have bad luck
• If you blow out all of the candles on your birthday cake with your first breath, your wish will come true.Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 5.09.10 PM
• If you walk under a ladder, you will have bad luck.
• Knock on wood for good luck.
• Step on a crack…break your mother’s back.
• Break a mirror and you’ll have seven years of bad luck.
• If you find a four-leaf clover or a horseshoe, you’ll have good luck.
• When two people tug on the ends of a wishbone, whoever gets the bigger piece gets his or her wish to come true.
• Opening an umbrella inside a house brings bad luck.

Are you superstitious? Tell me how…and if anything actually came true.

Comments from my Readers & Friends

  1. I don’t step on cracks but that is a game I play in my mind that my other foot can not step in that same section.

  2. once my mom said that there are alagaters in cracks and i never steped in a crack until i was 6

  3. I can never step on cracks. I know that rhyme isn’t true, but it’s just a little quirk of mine.

  4. Whenever I go to a sports usually the home team wins, or the away team wins because I really like them.

    • Are you saying your cheering causes teams to WIN? Nah. I don’t believe you really have that power.

  5. I have a superstition that if I walk away from a sports game when I want something good to happen, the team i’m cheering for will get good luck

  6. I have a superstition… dying! I feel that when I die, it gets very hard to live.
