Superstitions: Anything Unique to Your Culture?

A superstition is a belief that isn't based on fact but on old ideas, and each culture has their own. Learning about these can help us understand different cultural values. For example, in the US, it is believed that if you carry a rabbit's foot, you will have good luck. Another one is that if you go to the end of a rainbow, you will find a pot of gold.

So, share with us a common superstition from your country. Randall


  1. probably there is no diference between this sort of beliefs and the religions, because you can't prove it in other way but doing things that confirm what you believe.

  2. I guess most western countries share the same superstitions. For example, here in Brazil, it is also believed that a black cat can sometimes bring bad luck.
