when i hear a person will have bad luck or being talked about in connection with death..i always knock on wood 3 times (it supposed to be wood, not any other surface) i also bite on a hard surface when i dream of losing teeth. dreaming of lost teeth means someone might experience death.so biting a hard surface is the way to counter it.. so there are my superstitions. i know that somehow they're irrelevant and they may sound funny to you guys. But i cant help doing them sometimes..hehe. what are your thoughts?

Hi Kukaisiton, Oh I am the same, I always knock on wood and if I spelt salt I pick a pinch and throw it over my left shoulder and I don't put shoes on the table. new or not and it is bad luck to walk under a ladder too. Tamara

No even though I still knock on wood 3 times. hehehehehe! I used to believe in it when I was a kid, but I believe you choose your destiny and things happen because you think they will.

I don't have any superstitions or rituals to ward off evil.
