@Ahhh Girl?

Note by Ahhh Girl 29 May 2014: move accomplished while waiting out a plane delay in Chicago. I just wanna go home.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

If you see a black cat it's unlucky but if a black cat crosses in front of you, it's good luck*

*Not sure if this works regarding owning a black cat

 Some of our other superstitions that I've heard are:

 

If your ears are burning, someone is gossiping about you.

If your nose is itchy, you will have a fight with someone

If you spill salt, you must throw some over your left shoulder to stave off bad luck.

The seventh son of a seventh son has the power over all diseases and can cure them by laying hands.

You must never build a house on the site of a Fairy Fort for it will bring you eternal bad luck.

^That one is serious, my friends has a Fairy Fort in the field behind her house and the family will not tear it down even though it restricts them from getting things like satellite TV because it's massive. I also have heard loads of gruesome tales of people cutting down Fairy Forts.

It's very bad luck to place new shoes on a table or chair.

To make your skin beautiful, wash your face with May dew on May morning (May Day) at sunrise.

Lucky horse shoes are very common (I have one in my room) but you have to find it not buy it!

Fairies are dangerous buggers who if you leave a baby alone, the fairies will steal the baby and leave a naughty child (called a changeling)

If you are going to propose in a leap year, the woman has to propose on February 29th else the marriage will be unlucky.

A woman's scream (the banshee) signals the death of someone in the area.

When a fisherman catches the first salmon in the season he has to throw it back or else he'll have bad luck.

If a funeral passes by you and you don't bless yourself, you'll have very bad luck sometime during the year.

 

Yeah we're a superstitious folk 

 

Also don't call them fairies they don't like that :P Wee-folk or Síog (She-ohg)

I think actually literally believing in them is pretty silly, but it can be kinda fun to pretend you believe, and carry out the appropriate rituals - as long as you don't become obsessed to the point where you're really inconveniencing yourself.

There are many superstitions associated with hockey, such as the cultivation of playoff beards. And in the NHL, the refusal of the conference-championship winning team to touch their trophy (as indeed the New York Rangers refused to do so last night), for fear of jinxing themselves against further winning the real prize (the Stanley Cup). As for me, when my Maple Leafs are playing and I'm watching at home, I'll usually put on my Leafs sweater to give them luck (if I think of it). Sometime around February, I developed the further ritual whereas if they get down a couple of goals, I'll reverse the sweater so the logo isn't facing the TV. If their luck doesn't change after that, I curse and take it off and fix myself another drink! :) (Hey, there was a period a couple of years ago where the Leafs always seemed to win when the sound guy in the arena played a Beatles track during a stoppage in play! I remember mentioning it several times in "Beatley Moments" or somewhere.)

One of my favourite old superstitions is "Never put a hat on a bed", because it's so wtf.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Those are the ones I've heard of. And I thought it was different with the black cat. If they crossed your path you're unlucky, if you see them nothing good or bad. And if you own a black cat I don't think either applies.

I'm with parlance about the ladders, they just seem dangerous.

I agree with what VB said, I still do the little rituals, but don't really take them seriously. And I've never heard that hat one... Very strange! a-hard-days-night-john-6
