Do Tell: What are Your Superstitions?

Can you believe it's already Friday the 13th again? If you didn't get a chance to dish about your superstitions last time, here's your chance! Some people think it's bad luck to open an umbrella inside, while others refuse to walk under ladders.

So, ladies, do tell, what are your superstitions?

im not sure if this is a superstition. but my mother used to scare me with this all the time. don't point at the cemetery or the spirits of the dead will come into your room at night and bite your fingers off.

Poor cute black cats!! Black cats are actually very good if u want to eliminate bad energy. And in Mexico its said that black cats scare away spirits that try to harm u, so think twice next time u see a black cat ;)

Indians are also superstitious people, my mom, grandmoms, aunties all still believe in them. In the village my grandma stays in, they believe that you shouldn't go into the fields or woods from 12:00 to 4:00 pm cuz apparently thats when all the spirits and snakes roam around- I'm terrified of running into either so I totally stay in when I'm visiting her! :)

I'm not superstitious about anything, but I do have a good luck charm that I trot out for very special occasions. When I was eleven my mom gave me this little plastic "bear in a bunny suit" to take with me to a debate I was in. Ever since then, my bear in a bunny suit has been with me for SATs, GREs, and most recently my qualifying exam in graduate school. I'm a grown a*s woman and I've got this bear in a bunny suit sitting next to my laptop while I'm defending my thesis proposal. But hey, I haven't failed yet...

The birthday person has to make the first cut in the cake and he/she has to be given the first piece of cake or it's bad luck for the rest of the year.

I was raised Irish Catholic, so I have the year round superstition that if things are going too well, something really bad is going to happen.

i use to have a bunch, but now just the belief that luck comes in "waves" and they can be either good or bad. the chinese have a saying i heard once that goes something like this "once bad luck finds you it remembers where you live". and i think the same it true for good luck.

What is the oysters thing...? I don't get it! I'm not really supersitious, but I still make a wish if I look at a clock at 11:11 and I hesitate picking up tails-up pennies. So silly! Oh and snowyday, I was always told the same thing. I think it is just something someone made up for the person who got shit on feel better :) Damn those jersey seagulls.

I pick my feet up when driving across train tracks and count until the age I'll be on my next birthday. Sometimes I even do this while I'm driving... I also hold my breath when passing cemeteries; my mom used to say: It's not polite to breathe in front of those who can't. My grandfather passed away on Friday the 13th several years ago, and our cat died that same day 2 years later. So on that July 13th my mom always calls us to tell us to be careful. But normal Friday the 13ths don't bug me. Wonder what the folklore is behind Friday the 13th.

I make a wish at 11:11 (better than 3:33 because its four of the same number instead of three) or when I naturally lose an eyelash. I have this bodywash i put a dab of on my stomach if I want good luck. I have lucky underwear. I used to have a cat that was black, so I never really thought that was bad luck. I walked under a ladder today. Nothing happened.

I don't hang or put my bag on the floor cause the money will go easily, always pay with my right hand and receive with my left one, I don't brush my hair sitting on the bed, don't take the salt directly from someone hand when they pass it to you...and a couple more but I don't see them as superstitions I just do them automatically.
