Many of us must have heard of different superstitions and beliefs over the years. I wonder how many are really true and which one is just to scare us. The Truth is that, superstition has played one role or another in our lives.
As kids, we were made to believe that kicking your left leg/foot meant badluck, and the right foot was your goodluck charm. I did kick my foot this morning, so, am patiently waiting for Prince Charming,(isn't that goodluck?).
Sweeping at night meant doom, you were advised to erase what ever you wrote in the sand at night, lest the spirits not only take away your hand, but your ability to write.
As cultures differs, so do superstitions too. Some cultures believe killing a wall gecko will have you breaking plates often. A crying baby at night was interpreted to mean the child is possessed. How many of us waved at birds and sang "leke leke give me white fingers"? I did. I still haven't gotten the fingers, guess I didn't wave enough.
So let's gist, what are the superstitions you've heard and how has it affected you. Do you believe in superstitions?
