What Strange Superstition Does Your Family Believe In?

Is it white cats that rub you the wrong way?

We’ve all heard of avoiding boring ol' cracks in the road and walking under entirely average ladders. But let's be honest, it's the weird and unique superstitions that are always the most fun!

For example, in my family whenever we talk about a dream at night we have to dedicate the story to a nearby light, lest something terrible happen! Needless to say, many lightbulbs have been reluctant listeners of my dream retellings over the years.

Are you terrified of cutting your nails at night in case something really awful happens to your mum?
