PostSubject: Do you have any superstitions?   Sat 06 Nov 2010, 9:22 pm

Are you superstitious? I'm killing a little bit of time reading topics on other forums and thought some would make good topics of discussion for here. Here is another topic that I came across (copied and highlighted in blue).

"I went outside for a few minutes at work earlier and saw a penny. I walked over thinking yay, a penny, I can make a wish.

But it was on tails. I refuse to pick up a penny on tails.

It is just ingrained into me to not do that due to bad luck.

But I have no issue with opening an umbrella indoors, or seeing a black cat cross my path.

Just the penny thing, I can't do it.

Do you have any superstitions?

I throw salt over my left shoulder when I spill it.

I don't know why I am but I do the knock on wood, pick up a penny on the street if I see one, I don't put new shoes on the table (ones that you just purchased from the store), or open an umbrella indoors. Those would be the only things for me. lol

I guess I have a few, but I also like the knock on wood and if there is no wood in sight I will knock on my head. scratch

Find a penny and give it away and have good luck for the rest of the day.

Do not buy shoes for a partner or they will walk away from you in them shoes.

Spill salt and shake it over both of my shoulders.

If you drop a knife a man is coming.

There are lots that I do and not really sure why except these were things I was taught growing up.

No superstitions. Husband has enough for both of us. He is from a family of small town uneducated peasants. Not being cruel, it is true. If someone is infertile, they blame someone using voodoo. I would go nuts if I lived there.

Shocked

:lol: I guess that's one superstition that you had to get over very quickly.


One that I keep hoping was real is the itchy palm means you're going to receive money.

The variations are interesting. For me it is left palm and money is coming and right money is going. And if my nose itches you are going to kiss a fool.

I also do the knock on wood thing
See a penny pick it up then all day you'll have good luck
I also do not put new shoes on the table, my mom has instilled that in me lol.
I also do the salt thing and I will not open an umbrella in the house, in fact I cringed when a customer in Walmart opened one up in the store. :o

There are probably more that I follow but I cannot think of them right now.

Whats funny about the new shoes thing is... you wouldn't put your old shoes on the table... you'd think if you were going to choose, it would be the new ones you'd put on the table because they are cleaner.

I've always heard that if your nose itches, it means you're going to kiss a fool.
