when we about to go outside,if a cat crosses across us,some people think that it's not good at all.
that the devil actually exists. The evil was a representation for a mass body of former celestrial spirits. The devil is not a satr or anything like that-its a representation of a negative ideal. People who believe in "the Devil" give him life & a physical vessel to manifest. Belief is a powerful energy.
We people have a superstition regarding black cats.
If you are going some where and a black cat crosses your way, then it is considered highly inauspicious.
And people suggest that one should not pass that route because bad luck would follow you or you can diminish the bad effect by spiting in the path and then moving ahead .
I've heard one, that if you see just one magpie you are supposed to spit! Never done it though. Honest!
One that I always thought stupid was from my childhood. This was, that if you stood on a crack in the pavement the devil would come and get you.
Splitting a pole gives you bad luck, or using an umbrella indoors can also bring bad luck. Both "Stuperstitious" I'd say. I spelled it like that on purpose. Don't thumb me down for that.
If ur right eye twitches it is considered unlucky but if your left eye twitches you have some good news coming in!
All superstitions are silly and have no basis of fact or truth.
my grandmother used to believe it was bad luck to spill salt - if it spilled she would take a pinch of it and throw it over her shoulder... odd.
Oh and not walking under ladders was one I remember too
Hey...this is a great question. I was born and raised in Louisiana and I guess I've heard them all. I remember having a conversation in my mothers bedroom one time. I was a teenagers and we were getting ready to go to a funeral. She told me to not place the clothes I was about to wear on the bed because it was bad luck. I said, "that's silly". She said to me silly or not the supersitions have a basis from somewhere and she would just prefer not to do it. I asked if she thought it true... she said "I honestly don't know, but it was the way I was raise and so it has become habit. For what it's worth. I thought it a cute little story.
to list down many would probably consume half my life for there is no end to people's wild imaginations..however since it's an interesting question..out of all the prevalent notions..the most idiotic that i find is the one in which stopping a person going out for some work (which can be in the form of calling one's name, reminding some work etc.) is considered a bad start or sign with respect to the work concerned!!
i mean seriously is reminding a person about his forgotten documents while going for an interview bad or helpful??
UH!! TALES I TELL YOU!!
To meet a nun in the street means the purpose of your journey will be thwarted.
This one will probably die out in the near future because nuns now no-longer wear a habit. So cannot be easily recognized.
Or maybe people who fail in the reason for a journey will blame a nun anyway.
Dictionary:A widely held but unjustified belief in supernatural causation leading to certain consequences of an action or event, or a practice based on such a belief - she touched her locket for luck, a superstition she had had since childhood.
Probably the most memorable superstition told to me as a child by my grandmother: Don't go near men carrying sacks/bags - they put little girls in them and take them away!
Good one Gran!
When people are talking about you, and you come along, they will say Were your ears burning.
Step on a crack, break your mother's back.
If you dream your dying, you will not wake up. You will die.
