  • Superstitions!
    • Treed mentions knocking on wood.

    • Matt, of The Movie-o-Meter, mentioned not allowing the bride & groom to see each other on the wedding day.

    • Nick/Captain Pigheart mentioned, “My other half, the lovely Marilyn Bird, will never leave a book open at p13 or stop reading during chapter 13. Also, if the first person over the threshold is ginger it’s terrible luck… And never trust a man in brown shoes. Oh, peacock feathers in the house are bad luck – the sign of pride (Hera). And never put shoes on a table – that should only happen when a body is laid out in state.”

    • Ingrid provided a large listing:
      • Shards bring luck; but
      • a broken mirror means seven years bad luck.
      • the same applies when a black cat crosses the road from left to right. (or is it the other way round?)
      • When you hear the owl screaming, then someone dies.
      • The one who finds a four leaf clover, has luck.
      • Luck is also with you when a chimney sweeper touches you.
      • The horseshoe brings luck too, but it has to be fixed on the wall with the open end up. (so that luck can’t flow out)
      • One should avoid to walk under a ladder this might bring bad luck.
      • The first time when you hear a cuckoo call in spring you should have some coins in your pocket. The saying goes that you don’t have to worry about anything for the rest of the year.
      • And with the words “Hopefully everything goes well” (or similar words) people add “let’s knock on wood”. And if there is no wood around they knock with their knuckles on their head.


    • TheRevP mentioned, “My gran was convinced she heard a banshee when she was a slip of a girl in Ireland, and someone did indeed die the next day. Don’t have much more info than that I’m afraid.”
