Many people are superstitious. They believe in unproven and mysterious facts. Moreover, they are afraid of them. For example, when a black cat crosses their path, they say it’s for bad luck.
Or, when they walk under the ladder, it also brings bad luck.
It goes without saying that number 13 is an unlucky and evil number. In Britain people avoid having houses or flats of number 13. They don’t even have the 13th floor or room number in hotels. The unluckiest day is considered to be Friday the 13th, although some people simply have fun on this day, turning the superstition into an amusing game.
There are millions of superstitions in the world. Each country has its own examples.
For instance, Russians believe that carrying an empty bucket is not good or bumping into a person with an empty bucket in the street.
Taking out anything from home at night, especially the trash is also not good. Empty bottles on the table are a bad sign.
Other forbidden acts are giving watches and knives as presents. Watches are believed to lead to parting, while knives lead to conflicts and quarrels. There are other more pleasant superstitions.
During Christmas young girls get together and hold fortune-telling nights. They use some old-fashioned techniques to predict the important things in their life, for example, the date of a wedding, the name of a future husband, etc.
Other pleasant superstition is connected with spiders. It is not common to kill spiders in the house, because these insects are believed to bring good luck and money.
There are many other omens and superstitions in the world, but they all depend on the degree of your belief. Some people refuse to believe in such things unless there is a scientific reasoning behind it.
