Don't you know it's bad luck to be superstitious :O?


Give me some examples from your region/country! Here are some common superstitions from Turkey lol:

Knocking on the wood 3 times will keep the bad evils away or will protect you from a bad thing.

If your ear rings, somebody is talking about you. (they say that if it's your left ear, someone's talking badly about you, if right ear, someone is thinking you're a nice person lol)

If your left palm gets itchy you'll spend money, but if you right palm gets itchy then you'll receive money.

If you repeat one thing for 40 times, it will happen. (nah it doesn't work.)

Cats have nine lives.

If you sleep without any blanket on you, you may have nightmares at sleep. (damn it)

If the bottom of your feet itch, you'll make a trip.

If during a marriage the bride steps on groom's feet she'll rule in the house, or if the groom steps on bride's feet then he'll rule. ( Zorro, you know who will rule when we get married :P )

    walking over your future grave.
    If you break mirror gives 7 years bad luck
    It's bad luck to walk under a ladder

    I another thing about me that i told my therapist i get premonitions
    ( a strong feeling that something is about to happen, especially something
    But i believe that is a inherited gene handed down to me from
    a great aunt and they claim it's more common in people who have
    Czechoslovakia ancestry in them but i got other ancestries too in me.

  • One man's superstition is another man's religion. It's all the same crap.

  • Luck itself is superstition.
