Despite our attempts to call ourselves intelligent rational beings, we still hold on to some traditions or actions that stem from superstition, even if we don’t necessarily believe those superstitions. Some are easy to let go, such as fear of black cats crossing your path, but others, such as tossing a pinch of salt over the shoulder, are a bit harder to let go of. With that in mind, this week’s question is:
Whether tossing a pinch of salt over your shoulder or not walking under ladders, and whether you believe in the superstition or not, what superstition, if any, do you still observe?
I don’t consider myself to be superstitious, though I am familiar with black cats crossing paths, walking under ladders, third time lucky, broken mirrors etc, etc.
I have found in the past that bad things do tend to come in threes, but that’s about it.
I worked with a guy who was very superstitious and come Friday 13th, he always booked a day off and stayed in bed………… I kid you not.
Hubby and I both play along with not stepping on the cracks in a pavement because it’s supposed to be unlucky, but that’s just the big kid in us.
