I don't believe in and greatly discourage Superstitions that being said my dad is absurdly superstitious. He believes Pictures are bad luck and refuses to even allow cameras in the house claiming it's bad Juju (what ever that means) No all black cats allowed, no stepping on cracks not breaking mirrors in fact Portable mirrors are another outlawed item. We don't even own a ladder. My Grandpa's even worse. He actually believes in leprechauns and fairies. He always turns his clothes inside out so the fairies don't steal them. He carry's salt packets and a bell with him everywhere salt to throw over his shoulder and a bell to ring for dispelling fairies. For the longest time my grandpa accused me of being a "Changeling" when ever I tried to argue with him about all this and still try's to trick me into revealing my "real age" I broke a mirror once, my dad went ballistic and insisted that we had to wait seven hours (one for each year of bad luck) before picking up the broken pieces, and bury them outside in the moonlight. It's ridiculous!

I don't believe in all of them but I do make those solutions anyway, like spitting over your right shoulder if a black cat walks across the street. For safety

It's rather silly really... I have a sterling silver mock-up of a pistol round (ammunition for a handgun) that has my name engraved on it... I felt as long as I carried it, I was safe from gunfire. You see, I was already holding the 'bullet with my name on it', which meant that anyone shooting at me, didn't.

Like I said- silly. But I carried it without fail for the balance of my career in Law Enforcement.

I love superstitions, use them to scare kids that there going to get 7 years bad luck if you smash a mirror.
The only person who makes badluck is yourself, with your attitude (:

I'm not one to believe in them, because i don't get bad luck from walking underneath a ladder or whatnot

Superstition is only a belief or notion, not based on reason or knowledge. The word is often used pejoratively to refer to folk beliefs deemed irrational. This leads to some superstitions being called "old wives' tales". It is also commonly applied to beliefs and practices surrounding luck, prophecy and spiritual beings, particularly the irrational belief that future events can be influenced or foretold by specific unrelated prior events.

superstitions are set up to prevent stupid people from doing stupid things and the reason they get bad luck is because......there stupid examples dont walk under a ladder why it may fall on you because you may nudge it and if im on the top of it i'm goin to get hurt but an idiot will not listen to me if i tell him/her that so i tell that person they will be cursed and a horrible fate awaits them if they do so result idiot scared me safe on ladder problem solved.
