7 years bad luck when you break a mirror. "Bless you" after a sneeze. "Break a leg" before a performance.April Fools day.......he who plays the fool after noon, is twice a fool, himself. Never put new shoes on a table. Saying, "White Rabbits" three times before speaking to anyone on the first day of the month. Turning three times and curtsying when first seeing a new moon. Never see a new moon through a window for the first viewing. Crossing a babe' palms with silver. Etc, etc.

Do not hand anyone a pin. Sit it down. Handing the pin to them means "a pin sticks friendship ".

Step on a crack. Break your grandmother's back is one you missed. I like black cats, especially Sammy Davis, Jr. 13 is my lucky number. When I need to knock on wood I just knuckle my head. The reason superstitions hang around is because people are dumb enough to believe them.

My Mother warned me not to buy chef knives as a gift. A knife or set of knives would sever the relationship!

Excuse the theologian in me coming out again, but Jesus's purpose on earth was to die for the sins of mankind. He knew he would be arrested that night and crucified. So if bad luck had anything to do with it, then it would have been bad luck for the rest of us had that little soiree not happened. I was married to the most superstitious man on earth. Apart from all of the above, he was also afraid of 666 because it was the devil's number. 999 was the devils number upside down. 69 was also bad, and so was 15 because that was the sum of 6 and 9.

I love Ted Talks. Thank you for the tutorial on superstitions. They are harmless, but believing in them can hurt us, as such; 'knock on wood'. Ha-ha-ha.
