Okay, this is some sort of a survey.What other superstitions you know?I don't believe in most of them, I don't even practice them. So I'm asking anybody if you'd be so kind to post these superstitious beliefs and what do they mean or what do they accomplish.For example; Black cats = bad luck/misfortune Thank you very much..

There are many, many differet superstistions out there. One though that I do is throwing salt over my shoulder after it spills. You are to throw it over the left shoulder because that is the side that evil is supposed to come and you throw the salt into evil's eye. I don't neccessarily believe evil is there but I figure it can't hurt to throw it over the shoulder that way. Another I do is knock on wood. If you say something that you don't want to have happen you knock on wood to negate it. Usually I'll just say I'm knocking on wood and pretent to knock against my head but other times I will knock on the wood itself. Again I figure it can't hurt and if I don't want something to happen I will do what I can to prevent it.
