I'm not superstitious, but the stuff my mum insisted on stays with me...like Miffs said not putting new shoes on the table or opening an umbrella in the house.
I don't believe they bring bad luck, I just don't do it because I can still hear my mums panic stricken voice if anyone ever did do it when I was a kid.

The one thing I would never do, even when I was a kid was 'swear on someones life'....remember that?
I could be telling the truth but I would never ever do that, just in case there was a loophole somewhere and the person actually died. Shocked

No I'm not superstitious about Friday the 13th. The film freaked me out though.

The origins of some superstitions do have a point....i heard the shoes on table was derived from the time people were so poor they coulnt afford shoes, so if they saw a new pair they would nick them....so dont leave them on show.

Not walking under a ladder would ensure nothing would hit your head if something was dropped.

I was taught to never do that. Also saying you couldn't do something because someone was ill was a no no. It's like wishing illness on them.

Yeah I still do say on my life, or swear on someone elses, because I would never say it and lie.

Yep.....and ringing in work throwing a sickie when you are not so ill....trying to sound like you are dying so the boss would believe you....that usually backfired too. Laughing
