The other day my dad was driving on the way back home and he immediately stopped the car when he saw a black cat cross his vehicle. He believes that if a black cat crosses your vehicle, it brings bad luck along with it. One should stop and restart the vehicle to drive away the bad luck. I know it sounds insane and every time my dad does that i would be giggling thinking about the poor black cat who is not loved by anyone. I decided to pen down some weird and crazy superstitions around the world that may sound totally uncanny but there are many people who truly follow such beliefs.
SCRATCH YOUR PALM
It is believed in India that if your left palm itches then u might receive money but if your right hand feels itchy then you are about to spend money. In India people still believe that money should be given from right hand and taken from the left and this forms the basis for the itchy superstitious story. It does sound weird to associate itchiness with money but many in Southern part of India still believe it.
WATER WATER EVERYWHERE
In Serbia it’s a good idea to spill some water behind a person who’s going to a job interview, headed out on a journey, or about to attempt any sort of endeavor at all. The movement of water’s said to symbolize fluidity and motion. However, if you pour it on anyone by mistake then fluidity can go to a whole new level. Carrying an empty bucket, or even seeing someone carries one, is a bad omen. This is likely due to the fact that Tsar Alexander II was assassinated by a man with empty buckets for hands.
Such weird and wacky superstitious list goes on and it keeps getting more crazier. I am sure some of you guys would have a superstitious story to share with us. Let us know what you think about this. Do you really have any superstitious beliefs or do you think it is irrelevant in today’s world.
