Do you believe in superstitions?

Good luck superstitionsThousands of people believe in superstitions although a lot off people think of them as nonsense and not based on reason. Where does the word “superstition” come from?

  30. Friday the 13th is unlucky for someone because of the Night’s Templar stories.
    First, I’ll just say that every culture has a different belief. Some countries don’t care about Friday the thirteenth, or even the NUMBER 13 for that matter. They maay have a completely different number–or for all we know, an unliucky letter.
    Anyway, like I was saying, Friday the 13th is “unlucky” b/c the Night’s Templar went back on what they had a deal on with a king and killed many people. —below is from the link–
    “Witches’ Sabbath.”[12]
    Another theory about the origin of the superstition traces the event to the arrest of the legendary Knights Templar. According to one expert:

    The Knights Templar were a monastic military order founded in Jerusalem in 1118 C.E., whose mission was to protect Christian pilgrims during the Crusades. Over the next two centuries, the Knights Templar became extraordinarily powerful and wealthy. Threatened by that power and eager to acquire their wealth, King Philip secretly ordered the mass arrest of all the Knights Templar in France on Friday, October 13, 1307 – Friday the 13th.[5]
    The connection between the superstition and the Knights Templar was popularized in the 2003 novel The Da Vinci Code. However, some experts think that it is relatively recent and is a modern-day invention.[10][4][9] For example, the superstition is rarely found before the 20th century, when it became extremely common. One author, noting that references are all but nonexistent before 1907 but frequently seen thereafter, has argued that its popularity derives from the publication that year of Thomas W. Lawson’s popular novel Friday, the Thirteenth,[13] in which an unscrupulous broker takes advantage of the superstition to create a Wall Street panic on a Friday the 13th.[5]

    A further theory goes back to a combination of Paganism, Christianity, and the Battle of Hastings. For many, the number 13 was considered a lucky number (such as 13 lunar cycles each year), but with the efforts of Christianity attempting to degrade all things Pagan, they promoted 13 as an unlucky number, with Friday thus also being considered a bad day of the week. However, on Friday the 13th of October 1066, the decision was made by King Harold II to go to battle on Saturday the 14th of October, rather than allow his troops a day of rest (despite his army having made a long and arduous march from a battle near York just 3 weeks earlier). This decision in going to battle before the English troops were rested (the English lost and King Harold was killed), further established Friday the 13th as an unlucky day.

    In some other countries, instead of Friday, it is considered bad luck Tuesday the 13th. (Spain [1], Greece, Latin America). For example, the Fall of Constantinople, when the city fell to the Ottomans (a fact which marked the end of the Byzantine Empire), happened Tuesday, May 29, 1453, and is why Greeks consider Tuesday to be an unlucky day. In Italy it is on Friday the 17th.

    Some others..
    If you come across a pig in Germany, I think it’s good luck. I would name him bacon- though that might give you bad luck…
    Stepping on cracks in the sidewalk– is quite debatable
    If you dream about a green monkey, it brings bad luck as it means you;ll soon get sick
    If you believe you will have good luck, you will have good luck.
    if the groom sees a bride’s dress befor the wedding begins, it’s bad luck upon their marriage.
    Astronauts play a game of cards before they go on the space shuttle as good luck (so everything goes well).
    They also shake hands with everyone on staff as good luck so that everything goes well.

  37. If you Borrow salt it is very bad luck unless you cross the lenders hand with a silver coin.

    The Borrower of the salt will be poor that year if they don’t return the salt or pay with a silver coin.

    the Lender will be prosperous if they receive a silver coin from the borrower if no silver coin is received they too will be poor for that year.

  38. “Friday 13th is unlucky for some. The risk of hospital
    admission as a result of a transport accident may be
    increased by as much as 52 percent. Staying at home
    is recommended.”

    LEGEND HAS IT: If 13 people sit down to dinner together,
    one will die within the year. The Turks so disliked the
    number 13 that it was practically expunged from their
    vocabulary (Brewer, 1894). Many cities do not have a
    13th Street or a 13th Avenue. Many buildings don’t have a
    13th floor. If you have 13 letters in your name, you will
    have the devil’s luck (Jack the Ripper, Charles Manson,
    Jeffrey Dahmer, Theodore Bundy and Albert De Salvo all
    have 13 letters in their names). There are 13 witches
    in a coven.

    LEGEND HAS IT: Never change your bed on Friday; it will
    bring bad dreams. Don’t start a trip on Friday or you
    will have misfortune. If you cut your nails on Friday,
    you cut them for sorrow. Ships that set sail on a Friday
    will have bad luck – as in the tale of H.M.S. Friday …
    One hundred years ago, the British government sought to
    quell once and for all the widespread superstition
    among seamen that setting sail on Fridays was unlucky.
    A special ship was commissioned, named “H.M.S. Friday.”
    They laid her keel on a Friday, launched her on a Friday,
    selected her crew on a Friday and hired a man named Jim
    Friday to be her captain. To top it off, H.M.S. Friday
    embarked on her maiden voyage on a Friday, and was never
    seen or heard from again.

    On October 13, 1307, a day so infamous that Friday the
    13th would become a synonym for ill fortune, officers
    of King Philip IV of France carried out mass arrests
    in a well-coordinated dawn raid that left several thousand
    Templars — knights, sergeants, priests, and serving
    brethren — in chains, charged with heresy, blasphemy,
    various obscenities, and homosexual practices. None
    of these charges was ever proven, even in France — and
    the Order was found innocent elsewhere — but in the seven
    years following the arrests, hundreds of Templars suffered
    excruciating tortures intended to force “confessions,”
    and more than a hundred died under torture or were executed
    by burning at the stake.


    triskaidekaphobia- the fear of the number 13

    Because it was the day of our Lord’s crucifixion; it is
    accordingly a fast-day in the Roman Catholic Church.
    Soames says, “Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit on
    a Friday, and died on a Friday.”

  100. I had hung a small round mirror in my bed room. I went to visit another country for few days. I returned back I saw the mirror broke due to some bad storm the night before I returned back. What happened after 3 months my dad died all of a sudden due to heart attack.. My too died the next year after my dad’s death.. then we kept on facing some bad luck off an on for some years.. I believe if a mirror breaks it does brings bad luck.. I take great care now while hanging the mirrors or the walls…and am scarred of mirrors

  102. hey guys, i do believe in superstitions, but i have a delema. last night and like 3 nights ago i dreamed of money. Not just like any dream of me seeing my self from far away, but i had my purse with me and my fiance gave me a lot of money to put up in my purse. It was a bunch of 20 dollar bills and two 5 dollar bills. and so when i was going to put it up in my purse, i opened it and saw MORE MONEY!! and they were all 20 dollar bills!! so does this mean i’m gonna have good or bad luck?

  143. If you pick up a penny on heads and keep it, you’ll have good luck for the day. If you pick up a penny on tails, you have to give it to somebody else and you & them will have good luck. If you keep a jar of pennies in your kitchen, it’s good luck. If you have elephant figurines facing your front door with the trunks upwards, it’s good luck.
