        I thought it might be fun to list some superstitions. Here is a list of mine that I learned while growing up. Please note that I am from Mostly Irish descent:

        1. NO bird figurines in the house(bad luck).
        2. Always come in the same door you came out of.
        3. Never prolong waving goodbye to someone as they will get bad luck.
        4. Drop a fork a woman is coming by soon.
        5. Drop a knife a man is coming by soon.
        6. Drop a spoon and a baby is coming either by birth or to your house.

        I am sure I will think of more at some point!!!

        *If you spill salt, put some in your right hand and throw over your left shoulder*

        *never set your bed with the foot of the bed directly in front of the bedroom door*
        (It's an old Italian superstition- leading to death)

        *itchy palm=money

        *itchy nose=fight

        *ears ringing= someone is talking about you

        .....yes, Debo, my Mom was big on the knife,fork,spoon thing too

        ...and don't put new shoes on the table,

        Never say "it has never happened to me" when talking about something bad.

        Itchy palm  - give with the right and receive (money) in the left depending on which one is itching.

        don't walk under a ladder

        Broken mirror - 7 years bad luck.

        Those are off the top of my head.

        Geez...I don't know where to start...since I was growing up in place where most people  believe in superstitions that have been handed down from a long time ago and I never understood why my grandmother,mother,aunts,...would said so many weird saying that didn't make any senses at all but now? well...I don't believe in them, but I can't ignore them.
        *Don't cut your nails at night, some animals like mice will eat your nails, and then they'll become you or they'll take your spirit..
        *Never face the bed north, you will have nightmares and will bring you a bad luck.
        *Don't step on the door frame,your good luck will blow away.
        *If you break mirror in the morning, something bad will come in your way.
        * if you see crows or ravens when you are leaving your house, you will be in trouble and have bad luck all day but if you see magpies or listen to their calls  early in the morning, you will have good luck for a day.
        *Don't present a boyfriend or a girlfriend with a pair of shoes. If you do, your boyfriend or girlfriend will leave you.

        Funny thing about this all. Check out (I am not sure of location) the Northen New Englad places. Barns with hex symbols painted on buildings and this has been for generations!

        Make me wonder about that area..Evil rests and waits maybe??

        Hi Genenco- I was born and  raised in New England and alot of those hex signs has to do with the Salem Witch Trials. New England sure does have a lot of spooky places and lore. Maybe thats why I moved to Florida-lol.

        Don't cross a blackcats path,
        Don't walk under a ladder,
        Left palm itches - brings you money,
        Nose itches - someones thinking about you
        Break a mirror - seven years bad luck
        Never look into a mirror in the dark while saying bloody mary (this i think maybe more of a urban legend) What do you think?

        I thought of another one- Do not open an umbrella inside ANYWHERE- Real bad luck coming your way.

        Hi Debo,

        Love this question!! I think we are all superstitious to an extent, especially the gambler. I have my own quirks when it comes to that. "oh my i won when i sat this way.......oh put ur cursor just right here in that spot.....oh focus on each spin or i won't win"........etc.

        At the land casino its even worse........"oh no the person next to me can't leave they were my good luck charm........I have to wear this outfit cuz i won last time i was here.......Oh no don't sit next to me, i feel your bad luck"!!! The list is endless.

        One superstition i have created for myself. When i was a little girl i came out of the store with my dad holding my hand.....i had a penny and i threw it on the ground saying that won't buy nothing daddy!

        Needless to say i felt his wrath, as he went on to tell me the importance of a penny! Ever since that moment i HAVE to pick a penny up off the ground when i see it. I feel like it's bad luck if i don't and good luck if i do.

        The phrase comes to my mind when i pick it up...."find a penny pick it up...all day long have good luck"!!

        my own supertition,

        when I'm on a winning streak, I wont get a hair-cut, I wont cut my nails, it doesnt matter how long or dirty it gonna be, lol. 

        hair cut, cut nails = cut your winning streak off

        and I'll do the opposite when I hit a losing streak, it means to shake off my bad luck and start winning again, lol

        Heaven help us Taaadaaa.

        You've been on a winning streak since before Christmas! 

        I hope your hair remains long and your nails don't break.
