Yes, I am superstitious and not just around Halloween. I don’t know where these really stemmed from for me but to this day I will not do them and if I do I react. I know it is silly but while some are silly some actually make sense to me. Below I will list my top 5 Superstitions but I’d love to hear yours.
Ladders- Yes, I’m the freak that will not walk under a ladder. I mean you can’t tell me it is wise to walk under one can you? Think about it, if you walk under a ladder and the thing somehow collapses on you that is going to hurt. I never go under them at a bookstore either, picture someone being above you, you move it just slightly and they fall off. Or what about you being under it and a book falling from above. OUCH.
So yes, I do not walk under ladders, you are asking for something to happen.
Umbrella- Nope, never, ever open an umbrella inside a house….at least not around me. For one it is bad luck to open them in your house. Two if you do and the tip hits something you could possibly break something. Not to mention if you open an umbrella in your house how are you going to get it through your door?
If I’m walking with someone I tend to shout bread and butter if a pole comes between us or something. I don’t know where it came from or when I started doing it but I do.
Yes, if you have an eyelash falling I will tell you to make a wish. If the clasp of your necklace is in front instead of back I will do the one swoop to get it to the back. Pick up a penny on the ground but only if it is heads, I won’t pick it up on tails. No, I’m okay with a black cat crossing my path, in fact I had a black cat that I adored and would love another one. The number 13 doesn’t phase me, in fact I find myself luckier on that day. What superstitions do you have?
