How many of you still believe/hold on to/perpetuate “superstitions”? Say, when you spill salt, you throw it over your left shoulder. Or say, the whole avoiding black cats and broken mirrors and things to this nature.
Personally, I still knock on wood every time I speculate negatively about the future. I’ve been doing that since the 5th grade when the one time I actually tempted fate and “mocked” the whole knocking on wood thing. Let’s just say the very next day I broke my first bone.
Although I am not sure this is a superstition per say, I also have to close every door in my bedroom before I go to sleep, or else I get very vivid nightmares and a feeling something is watching me as I sleep.
It tends to make me think that on some basic level, superstitions are in place for a reason, and that maybe they shouldn’t be taken as “lightly” as a lot of times they are. I’m just curious on your opinions on the matter.
