I gotta admit that I came from a very superstitous family and I am very superstitous too. Growing up we had rules like no whistling at night, no pounding nails at night, and other stuff like that. What are your superstitions?

I would have thought that no whistling at night and not pounding nails at night were just ways to keep safe from siblings beating you up and neighbors calling the police. We didn't have a lot of superstitions, but my mother did have a thing about it being bad luck for a bird to fly into a window.

We had the bird thing too at our house. It meant that someone in the family or someone close to the family was going to pass away.

No, I don't believe in superstitious. But some people said that religion is a superstitious thing. If so, most people in this world are superstitious, aren't they? Since many people believe that the number 13 is bad, people who don't believe in superstitious must adjust with that. Some sellers, for instance, don't want to sell products that contains the total number of 13. I believe in God because God is more powerful than Satan. In my religion, superstitious is sinful because it means that it is a lack of trust in the divine providence of God and it is against the first of the Ten Commandments.
