there are times that i believe them. and there are times that i had to because i already got busted and fell victim into it. beliefs that really is annoying but true in a sense of way....sometimes it can be hilarious and annoying as well. you can listen to superstition but you don't have to believe in it.

Superstition is a traditional belief that a certain action or event can cause or foretell an apparently unrelated event. Some superstitious people believe that knocking wood wards off evil spirits, carrying a rabbit's foot will bring them good luck. Others believe that if a black cat crosses their path, they will have bad luck - or dropping a fork on the floor means company is coming. Such beliefs are superstitions because in each case the action and the event it foretells are traditionally thought to be connected. A superstition is a phenomenon that develops when two separate events SEEMINGLY cause something to happen. Imagine for instance, that a baseball player taps his bat against the ground three times in a row just before getting a single hit. The hit is, of course, coincidental to the batter's prior tapping, but to the player it may be seen as somehow related. Because the player makes this association, he may hit the ground three times every time he is at bat in the future. We humans are not alone in superstitious beliefs. Superstitious behavior has been documented in modern apes by anthropologists Jane Goodall and R. Schaller. And psychologist, B.F. Skinner noted superstitious behavior in pigeons he studied. Interesting, huh? I'm not superstitious. I have a black cat and I've walked under ladders.

I don't believe in superstitions like that, if something happens then it was a coincidence. However I do believe in ghosts and spirits and those kind of things. Just not things like this day is unlucky or horoscopes.
