Lucky superstitions :)

Bad Luck?


When a black cat crosses your path do you take seven steps backwards? Does a cracked mirror make you uneasy and apprehensive about the impending misfortune? Do you fear walking under the ladder? When someone sneezes as you are walking out of the house, do you go back and sit for a while before heading out? Do you hand over a knife of scissor to someone or do you keep them on the table for the others to pick them up on their own? Do you get worried when you break a glass?

If you have answered yes to any of the above questions, then you are superstitious. Black cats have become victims of bad publicity due to their role in horror movies. Dogs have been marketed very well hence they are the favorites and are considered harmless and cute. Hope I am making some sense…

  1. I'm not hugely superstitious…I love black cats and white cats, tabbies and calicoes, siamese and persians. I'm not scared of walking under a ladder–getting me up on a ladder–now there is something to be scared of!!

    Enjoyed your post!

  2. Nope, I would go near the black cat and stroke its head.
    Nope, I am more worried about the mirror getting more broken and its pieces getting someone hurt.
    Nope, I don't see anything scary about walking under a ladder.
    Nope, I'd probably go out more and buy that person who sneezed some Vitamin C.
    I've handed over a knife and a scissor to so many people and thank God, nothing untoward happened to me.
    I'm more worried of the broken pieces of the glass causing harm.

    Funny how so many people believe in superstition. I only believe in God and knowing that He keeps me safe. 🙂

    Delightful post, Sulekkha! ❤❤❤ God bless 🙂

  3. Sulekha, I wouldn’t consider myself strictly superstitious, but I have done some things to avoid befalling bad luck. Some of these include: not walking under ladders, not opening umbrellas in the house, not crossing in front of black cats and knocking on wood when things are going well. Given the length of that list, I may have to rethink whether I’m superstitious or not, eh? 🙂
