I was thinking about superstitions and how a lot of cultures have their own. Like my co-worker once told me it was bad luck to put my pocketbook on the floor because you will go broke or something. It got me thinking that I bet everyone has at least a couple things they are superstitious about even if they don’t really notice it.
Things I am superstitious about:
- Walking under ladders – I don’t think I’m really afraid of ladders but I figure it can’t hurt to walk around them.
- Breaking mirrors – I’m still convinced that when I broke a mirror when I was 10 it explains the horrible years from 10 to 17.
- Sidewalk Cracks – I’m not sure if avoiding cracks in the sidewalk is a superstitious thing or an OCD thing.
Now I realize these things don’t actually change anything but I still do them. I think everyone has at least one supersticious thing they do. What is yours?
