Superstition is something I grew up with. My culture is a very superstitious one and there are tons of them. First you have all the mainstream ones, ladders, black cats, the works. But then there are some that maybe people in the US never heard of. I also read an article this week about one of the softball players in the US Olympic team, and how she has a ritual that she follows every game, ah and the whole haircut thing with some football player. (bonus for the sport fans who is it, he got injured after he cut his hair last season).
Webster definition of superstition
1 a : a belief or practice resulting from ignorance, fear of the unknown, trust in magic or chance, or a false conception of causation b : an irrational abject attitude of mind toward the supernatural, nature, or God resulting from superstition
2 : a notion maintained despite evidence to the contrary
Now here is where you all are going to start scratching your heads. I used to fall into that superstition trap all to often. But then I move to the US right, and FRIDAY THE 13 comes along… and I am like, wait a minute, its TUESDAY THE 13… in Colombia and other Latin countries, the bad luck day is TUESDAY. Now how silly is that. Just because of geography or language, bad luck changes. So, are any of you superstitious?
