I wouldn't say I'm really ALL that superstitious, but from the list, I do believe in things coming in 3s. And I avoid opening my umbrella indoors.

"One we've had in the family since I don't know when. When you give a wallet or purse as a gift you always add a dollar bill in it so that the person receiving the gift would never have a bad need for money."

That sounds like a fun tradition, and a really nice thought.

I don't really have any superstitions. I do believe that we go through good and bad patches in our lives and if you want to call it "luck" it's as good a word as any. Some of the superstitions make sense though - walking under a ladder isn't safe, open an umbrella in my tiny entry way and you're bound to poke someone's eye out, shoes on the table would definitely be unsanitary. Others just make no sense at all like the rabbit's foot or the black cat.

I'm looking for my inner athlete, but I'm afraid I may have eaten her. If I'm very quiet I can hear her screams of terror.

No superstitions here, in fact I just closed my umbrella which I had been drying downstairs since Tuesday.

No real superstitions, but I still put my left shoe on first. (a habit from my days playing baseball)

Do or do not, there is no try.

My Dad never let us put our shoes on any table. He always said that it was bad luck. It stuck with me, but I just think it is unsanitary. We never opened up an umbrella in the house. As a kid, I never like Friday the Thirteenth, but as an adult, I love it.

I sometimes feel as if there is black cloud over me and luck isn't on my side. In reality I believe we mostly create our own luck in our life choices.

I don't have any superstitions, but my grandmother had a few that she followed very strictly

1) she NEVER handed me a knife or a pair of scissors. She would set them down near me for me to pick them up. Reason: hand someone a cutting impliment and it will severe your relationship with them

2) She always tossed a bit any spilt salt over her shoulder, to ward off bad luck

3) She always gave a nice set of knives to any newlywed in the family, but she always taped a penny to one of the knives that had to be returned to her. Reason: same as number one, but if the person BUYS the knives from you, the relationship remains intact.

Aloha Horror Hounds!

With St. Patrick's Day coming up soon... I thought we could check out the "Luck of the Irish" cause I was wondering...
Do you know where that phrase comes from? I read a few answers and liked this one the best... many sites said pretty much the same thing. wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_origi
n_
of_the_term_'Luck_of_the_Irish'


Which leads to today's question .... are you superstitious? Do you believe in good luck/bad luck?
Here is a list of 13 common superstitions: www.livescience.com/14141-13-common-
si
lly-superstitions.html


to me, superstitions have to be believed to work... like magic. :)

So what do you believe as far as superstitions go?
Do you throw salt over your shoulder if you spill it? (For me... no) Do you carry a good luck charm? (No, but if I found something, I just might. :)

Here's what I think of the 13 they listed:
13. Beginner's luck - yep, I kinda believe in this one cause it seems to happen.
12. Find a penny, pick it up - I do pick up a penny when I find it, altho I'm skeptical on the all the day you'll have good luck part.
11. Don't walk under that ladder! - I don't think this is bad luck if you do... however, it just makes sense not to.
10. Black cats crossing your path - I own a black cat and she crosses my path all day every day!
9. A rabbit's foot will bring you luck - I always found this one quite silly.. the rabbit had 4 and it didn't do much good for him!
8. Bad luck comes in threes - this seems to be true more often than I care to admit! LOL!
7. Careful with that mirror - cause a broken mirror can cut you, but I don't think it's bad luck to break one... I have broken many in my day and no bad luck.
6. 66 - definitely creeps me out. I avoid this number when I can. :)
5. Knock on wood - I do it ... just in case! :)
4. Make a wish on a wishbone - this one is just fun.
3. Cross your fingers - I did this as a kid. But not so much any more.
2. No umbrellas inside - and why not. as long as you're not popping it open in anyone's face!
1. Friday the 13th - definitely my lucky day! LOL!

What superstitions do YOU believe?
