I'm not really supersitious... I don't think these kinds of events or images have to do anything with our fates and luck.

These are just beliefs without any scientific basis. I know that nothing will happen if get up putting my left leg first but nevertheless i do it. These beliefs differ from countries to countries, from culture to culture which have been passed down from one generation to the other and since mylot is a place where i get to interact with people all over the world i thought it would be fun knowing what other kind of superstitious beliefs exist.Please narrate any story you've heard even if you don't believe in these craps. :))

No I am not, never had a reason to be. I love black cats, the dark, Friday 13 never brought me bad luck. BTW I find it kind of weird that you talk about the right leg touching the ground first. I think getting out of bed is kind of habit and you will do it always in the same way (unless your leg is broken or so). BTW we do have a dutch saying: stepped out of bed with the wrong leg. Which means: in a very bad mood!

All superstitions are weird WakeUpKitty. Yeah its a habit and its done unconsciously.I usually throw my left leg out of the bed first(the wrong leg) and when you are in a bad mood obviously it also implies you'll have a bad day too. I think this where this dutch comes from.

They are right. And even if one doesn't, you might still have an accident when you are driving.

I am superstitious. There is a big difference between being superstitious and OCD. Having to do certain things repeatedly or in a certain way would be OCD not superstitiuous.

Thats right...being superstitious is not a disease friend and it cannot be treated.Either you believe or you dont...thats all. Its totally different from OCD which is mental disorder.

The 2 stories you shared are very interesting. They were the first time I heard of them. One of the superstitions I know is never to cross the path that was intercepted by a black cat and never choose number 13 (even though it is my mom's and daughter's birthday. Thanks for sharing. At least, I learned something new.

hehe...thanks for your response.These 2 Black cats and Number 13 are worldwide superstitions.Its probably because so many books and movies have always associated them with bad omen.Hope we learn more from other mylotters.

Well, I won't call myself superstitious. I don't stop when someone sneezes or dont think that putting on my right socks first is important. But I am superstitious about things such as black magic and curses. I have experienced things that can just not be explained by natural factors. So, I do believe that these things exist and I also say prayers to ward off such evil things.

My late father's family had a superstition that if you have rice on Monday you will have food for the rest of the week, and it's only quite late on in life that my late mother told me about it. Until then I'd no idea that having risotto on Monday was any more than a family habit. I didn't feel I needed to tackle this particular superstition. As it happened, comparatively recently, once when I was on holiday with them we didn't have rice on Monday. Of course we didn't starve that week, but Dad's pills ran out and had to be replaced as an emergency.

Before when I was a kid, i do believe on that because it has been told by my parents and grannies. But now that I am grown up. I think some superstition are stupidity. Like avoid to broom at night and let the waste and dusts throw outside. They said lucks inside the house will fade. I find it stupidity because I want to clean my room and the house and it is only in the night that I can be able to do that because I am busy during days in the office.

I am superstitious and will not walk under ladders and never like to tempt fate but it is friday the 13th which I hate the most as something bad always happens to mean on friday the 13th.

Most people who are superstitious are those uneducated but rich and intellectuals are also stupid practicing superstition. If you are a true Christian, you should not be superstitious since the bible itself condemns that stuff. Paul asserted in I Timothy 1:4: “Nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies. These promote controversies rather than God’s work – which is by faith.

I guess I am a little superstitous, but not to the extreme. I can't even think of any examples right now. I am, however a creature of habit. I do things the same way all the time. I get up at the same time. I have 2 cups of coffee. All the things I do have a routine, and I do it the same way all the time. I don't get upset if something is done differently, though. It's not OCD, just habit.

My parents are superstitious. I think it is common in our country. Some superstitious believes could be true. Nothings gone if we believe. I just make it a guide in my life.
