Superstition ain't the way

Yesterday I was listening to the radio and people were "making fun" of another person because she was superstitious. They were trying to force her walk under a ladder. Well, a few years ago I would say that I am not superstitious at all. But well, I have a lot of "traditions". I bring the same juice to every single test/exam I have to make. I do all the stuff we need to do in New Years Eve (money on the shoe, get down of a chair, make 12 wishes,...). I even can not put my purse/bag on the floor anymore. What about you? Do you consider yourself a superstitious person?

It is considered bad luck to walk under a ladder,for the simple reason that the ladder may fall on you.

Most superstitious are based on common sense.

I'm not superstitious, but I just like things a certain way, sometimes.

@fufurinha No, not at all. Maybe just a little OCD

I am ...the only problem is same pen, same clothes, same rituals don't work the same way all the time...but I still hold those things with due regards thinking I possibly forgot to brush my teeth or have bath.

@fufurinha ..groan...superstitions are silly they don't work...but we associate those things with our good luck and eventually end up feeling we did something wrong. We expect miracles from inconsequential stuff..lol

Traditions and superstitions are part of our culture. I respect them the same way I respect all religions.
