Hi you guyz.
For a R.E. homerwork I need some superstitious things people sometimes do or believe. (black cat from the left/right) and this stuff.
I' already found some things, but we have to find a whole DIN A4 sheet and we're not allowed to use big letters. Maybe someone can give me some more?confused

Thx hug

magpies? one for sorrow, two for joy.

Knock on wood, don't open umbrellas indoors it's bad luck, broken mirror is seven years of bad luck, um . . . ... that's all I can think of right now. erm

cracks in the road (bad luck if u step on them)

saying white rabbit at the start of each month for luck

the mirror thing

friday the 13th...bad luck all day

Also say White Rabbit over and over if you are sitting around a campfire and the smoke is blowing in your face.

If the first butterfly you see in the year is white, you will have good luck all year.
Three butterflies together mean good luck.
If a candle lighted as part of a ceremony blows out, it is a sign that evil spirits are nearby.
If the first calf born during the winter is white, the winter will be a bad one.
If a black cat walks towards you, it brings good fortune, but if it walks away, it takes the good luck with it.
Keep cats away from babies because they "suck the breath" of the child.
A cat onboard a ship is considered to bring luck.


im sure that is enough big grin

If a candle is glowing purple, it means there is a witch or a warlock around.
