Superstition: an unreasonable fear of nature, or the unknown
There are many superstitions around the world. Some people hold their breath waiting for the misfortune to happen, others will run away from the superstitious happening and sleep with the light on for the rest of their lives.
Some common superstitions include:
1. Not letting black cats cross your path
2. Getting out of bed on your left foot
3. Not spilling salt
4. Not walking under ladders
5. Not breaking a mirror
6. Fear of Friday the 13th (by all means don't turn 13 on Friday The 13th!!)
There are some superstitions that involve food. These superstitions are rather silly, but some people really believe them. We'll name a few and you can decide how silly they are for yourself:
1. If the salt shaker spills in a particular person's direction, that person will have bad luck.
2. It is said that spilled salt should not be cleaned up. Instead, you should scoop up the salt with your right hand and throw it over your left shoulder where it will fly into the face of the demon or monster that sent the bad luck upon you.
3. If salt is spilled into your eyes, you must cry every grain of salt out before your eyes are salt-stained. If you don't cry, bad luck will fall upon you for seven years.
4. If you wear a small bag of pure salt around your neck, it'll protect you from all evil spirits until the salt becomes old and impure.
5. Salt is an unlucky word for sailors
6. Salt is good luck if you dump it on the foundation of a new house until the next Friday the13th.
In conclusion, superstition is just a word or is it?
