    Are you superstitious?  What are you superstitious about?

    I'm very superstitious.  I don't walk under a ladder, I'm terrified of a black cat crossing my path, I believe of 7-year bad luck if I break a mirror, and if it is not so very necessary, I won't go out on Friday the 13th.  What about you?  Are you superstitious?  If yes, what are you superstitious about?

    I was very superstitious in my young days because my mom happened to be that way.  When you are young, you adapt yourself to whatever your parents do.  Nearly everyday, I was given anecdotes of don't pee under a tree in the evening, spilling milk is bad, breaking a mirror is a bad omen which brings you bad luck for seven years, etc.etc.  As I grew older and wiser, having a family myself, I have spilled milk, I have shattered a couple of mirrors and all that, but there have been no repercussions.  I feel that superstition is like religion - if you believe in it, it will happen.  When a doubt enters my mind, I erase it right away saying to myself what is going to happen is going to happen.  These things are beyond anyone's control.  Have faith in yourself and live life with an open mind and all the stress and anxiety will disappear.

    I don't really consider myself superstitious but prefer not to walk under ladders, something could drop on your head. I prefer not to take the third light, in WW11 snipers would spot the first light, take aim from the second and fire on the third. I am not worried about Friday the 13th or black cats, I would though wish on a shooting star but then I'd wish on anything at anytime. Luck, good or bad will happen and it may or may not give you a warning. No, not superstitious but do try to be careful.

    I think I am superstitious too.I believe that breaking of mirror can be a bad sign. but I really don't think it can have its effect for 7 years,When I was in my country, I used to be scared of black cats crossing the road, but after I came to the Philippines, every now and then I see cats.So ,I got used to it.
    The other things that I believe are spilling of milk is a bad omen, dogs howling at night, cats crying, eagles appearing in the sky out of nowhere, etc..I also believe that finding a feather means an angel's love.I do not cut nails during night and inside the room.When I am about to eat, if the food is too hot, even if it hurts my tongue, I do not express it with "ouch" or something like that.I do not like to throw food as I was told that leftovers can curse you for throwing them.So I always try to finish my meal .etc.

    I would like to believe that I'm not superstitious but about some things I am. I do not like to open umbrellas in the house, do not cross the path of a black cat, get a little worried on friday the 13th or anything to do with the number 13, and would be concerned about breaking a mirror. Whew   guess I was more superstitious than I thought smile

    I have thought long and hard about this. Off the top of my head I would have said that I was a little superstitious. Aren't we all? After thinking about it I have not been able to come up with any superstitions. I guess I am not.
