    Superstitions

    Friday the 13 just passed us all.. just been two days.. lol ^^ but the first things that comes to mind is that.. the belief that how bad luck friday and the number 13.. but to us now those are just superstition beliefs...

    So,.. Name the most.. absurb superstition things that you ever heard or seen people practiced...

    Maybe your own town or family or friends has their own beliefs through their own culture.. name the ones you think are interesting.. and tell us why ^^

    Taboos that you think are superstitious..

    Add things that you think that has something to do with this topic..

    I'm going to start with the black cat. It is suppose to be unlucky for a black cat to cross your path, and to undue the bad luck you must cross the black cats path. It would be funny to watch someone try to chase a black cat so they can cross it's path.

    Re: Superstitions

    Breaking a mirror is the only superstition that makes sense to me.

    It makes sense because if u look in a mirror and you break it, it's like your symbolically breaking youself.


    Thanks to _gwenibe_ for this awesome sig!

    Re: Superstitions

    Hmm good theory...there i like the way you think.. Breaking your self literally by breaking a mirror...

    Ahh.. Black cats.. that is the one that still exists today.. even in many cultures.. like mine...

    We believe that if a black cat crosses over a grave during full moon.. the dead will rise again.. that is also...bound by many rules and regulations... can't happen just like that.. but i don't believe in that superstition..

    Egyptian treat cats... especially black ones like god.. they love their cats so much they even mummified them... ^^

    I wonder if there are many other cooler ones with cats... I love cats..

    Re: Superstitions

    Cats are my favorite animal. There is another superstition that if a cat washes behind their ears it will rain that day. If that was true, My cats would make it rain every day.

    interesting... that is a nice one... I find that very absurd... There is a superstition i learned from an anime called Mokke...

    It says that when cats gone missing.. they are not dead.. instead.. they went up to the hills to "train" o.O and the oldest of the cats there will have twin tails...and will aquire special powers.. o.O i don't know if that is true.. but from what i see.. the whole anime is based on Japanese superstition.. can anyone tell me if this superstition has really been practiced?

    Re: Superstitions

    ah Superstitions, cant excatly remember but i heard once that a guy was afride of the number 13 and he stayed in bed the whole day andwas afride of the number 76 as it added up to 13 and died 13 minute before the day was over.

    Here a few i heard which are somehow bad luck

    A 5-leaf clover

    Breaking a glass while proposing a toast

    Putting a shirt on inside out

    To encounter a gravedigger coming towards you. Usually this means there will be a severe illness.
    This world is corrupt
    Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
    I am so alone, I got no one to talk to, please help me
