  1. Yes, several. I’m highly superstitious and have read a lot of ‘old’ books, so I come to know about different superstitions and why and how they come into play. One that I’ve had since I was a child came from that old rhyme “Step on a crack, break your mother’s back”. I’ve avoided stepping on cracks ever since I first heard it and yeah sometimes I take a step back, look at myself, and say “Man. That’s WEIRD!” Besides now my mother is dead, so why worry? 😉 BUT. I still do it.

    1. Hahahahaha yes, I’ve heard about that one 😉 I agree, your mother probably wouldn’t risk much if you stopped! But when you start doing such things, it is very hard to stop. Personally, I collect Freja’s whiskers when they fall off. I was once told they brought good luck, I don’t really believe it, but I still keep them anyway. Chéri really finds it silly.

  2. If there is a ladder or board leaning up against a wall and the shape forms a triangle I will not step through it but go around even if it means stepping into the street. I have heard it is something to do with the Trinity ( God/Christ? Holy Spirit) and walking through it breaks the Trinity. I have also had it pointed out that walking under a ladder leaning on a building could be dangerous. Another one: in the theatre there is a superstition that you must NEVER

    1. Oops dont know what happened there In the theatre you must NEVER say Macbeth. If anyone says it they have to go out of the room and turn around 3 times and knock to re enter the room. No one must tell them to come in They just come in and the spell is broken. This is a serious one in the theatre to the point that actors just refer to “the Scottish play” never Macbeth.

      1. I’m surprised I never heard about this one before. I am a big theatre fan, and now I wonder if I might have said it once. The chances are slim to none, since I rarely mention Macb*th, but whenever theatres re-open, I’ll really be careful (and I’ll have a thought for you for sure, when I enter the room 😉 )


      2. You’ve cleared up the ‘never walk under a ladder’ superstition. That’s very interesting! And I’d heard about the “Scottish Play” one bringing bad luck, but in addition, nobody must quote ANY of the lines from it either…


    2. Oooooh, a classic 🙂 I don’t believe in the badluck factor, but I always get a feeling that the ladder will fall on top of me, so I too go all the way around it 😉 That Trinity explanation is very interesting, first time I hear about it.
