e.g. black cat simbolizes death or bad luck. it may sound old-fashioned to talk about superstitions nowadays. but i'm just wondering if you ever heard some. do you believe them?

Dear friends in the mylot forum superstitious topic is very much interest . Some body told that it is bogus and tohers told there is some belief. But I strongly felt the existence of superstitious. If you have marked that when a new job is started by some one he is very much particular about auspicious day, date, and search for muhurat so that his work will be completed within time and without any problem. Many Indian flim actor also follow the same path before releasing or signing a picture as there is always uncertainty about the success. I also believe the same. pkc3000

I don't worry about things like a black cat or walking under a ladder. I think that's a load of rubbish that was made up a long time ago. However there is one superstition that I still hold- that is doing the sign of the holy cross when an ambulance flies past with all its sirens on. I rememebr my mother always doing this when I was little and I guess it's just stuck with me! I feel 'wrong' if I don't do it...somewhat vulnerable. I know it's just a superstition but I think superstitions are also habits or something to do with obsessive compulsive disorder!
