The world is full of good and bad, both seen and unseen. Most of us just go through life hoping for the good, and doing the best we can to make it through the bad. But, for the superstitious soul, they believe that human beings make their own luck. It depends on their actions, whether they are purposeful or accidental. Here is a continuation of the list of top 20 superstitions:
9. Make a Wish
If a draft from an open door causes your candle to flicker and go out, you better have had a chance to make a wish. Supposedly, you are in store for some bad luck that will be coming your way, because an evil spirit is near.
10. Do you have a Light?
It seems that some people believe that it is bad luck to light three cigarettes with the same match. What do they expect to happen? Oh yah! Three people are just setting themselves up for diseases like emphysema and cancer. I guess that is really bad luck.
11. Chalk Please
Have you ever wondered why a person will draw a chalk circle around themselves in vampire movies? It seems that there is a very real superstition that evil spirits cannot harm you, if you are standing in a circle. Why not just build a round house?
12. Lucky Coin
How many times have you looked down at the pavement, in front of a supermarket or quick shop and found a coin. Boy! It’s your lucky day! Or, is it? According to superstition, you shouldn’t pick up the ones that are tails side up. Why not? They all spend the same.
13. Jiminy Cricket
Supposedly, if you have a cricket in your house, it means good luck. However, what’s lucky about not being able to sleep, because they are chirping in your house, in the middle of the night?
14. Dry Skin Alert
If the palm of your left hand is itchy, you are going to be paying out some money; conversely, if your right hand itches, you are about to come into some money. But, realistically, it probably means you have been neglecting your dry skin and need some hand lotion.
