Tin Sista & Jim -- Yes to the horseshoe over the door (one of my granddad's) and yes to black-eyed peas on New Years. Texas Caviar makes it all too easy! Steph, no fair writing that down unless you share back ...

I am far from the most reverent person in the world but our public radio is broadcasting live the Festival of Nine Lessons & Carols from Kings College, Cambridge, on Sunday morning from 9:00-10:30. Imagine the English countryside at Christmas Eve's sunset to have a sense of the setting. Check your local schedules. It always puts me in a sublime groove. The volume will be really cranked up as I knead my hazelnut-dried cherry hearth bread ...

How about braking a mirror and the seven years bad luck...or opening an umbrella inside....

I've had way too many birds hit my to know what that's about also. I have to put sun catchers in them in hopes they will avert a most certain disaster... I have saved quite a few though, that's gotta be some kind of good karma

My Superstition is a mountain just east of the Phoenix area! Have you heard the story of the Lost Ducthman's Gold? It was also where H.I.'s trailer was parked in the movie Raising Arizona.....

Salt and Pepper

I don't have any that I am aware of. However, my Mom had some:

No elephants (figurines, pictures, etc.) in the house - don't know why
Spill salt or pepper toss a bit over your shoulder to prevent bad luck
Position of baby in womb (high - boy, low - girl or vice versa)
No walking on a grave in a cemetary

More but I think that is enuff!

I Owned a Green and Silver 2001 Triumph Bonneville. But it was from England even though I am not. I kept it for one season and sold it. Thankfully I am still here to debunk this one...

Bob, We'll tune in on Sunday. Thanks for the heads up--sounds wonderful! My bread is cranberry-orange with Grand Marnier glaze, but being made on Friday.
Happy Holidays! And be sure to leave out the cookies and milk! My favorite superstition.

Don’t believe in superstitions- -it’s unlucky, believe me!

Does irrational logic causes some to “group think” that they are rational?

Never put shoes on a table.

Never hand anyone or take from anyone a sharp object directly. It must first be put down and then picked up by the other person.

Always have at least one cat in the house to ward off evil spirits.

Yellow Cab / Taxi

Hi, I only have one. And that is to not drive behind a Yellow Cab. If for some reason I end up behind a Yellow Cab, I fall back about ten car lengths or change lanes.

Reason: About 35 years ago I accidentally ran into the back of one. My jippo insurance company declined to pay. So I made payments for damage to this Yellow Cab. I tell people, "I bought one of those and I'm never going to buy another one."

So I consider my superstition real.

Never step on a crack. (yes, I look funny walking down a sidewalk pacing to avoid the cracks.)
Never let your feet touch the car's floor when driving over a railroad track. (Yes, even as an adult, if riding in the car, my feet almost of themselves lift! This was a teenage thing with us, and if caught with feet down, we owed cokes around) Weird, eh? ~G

My mother always had the superstition that you couldn't allow the grandfather clock to stop, otherwise a family member would die. On two occasions that I know of, the clock did stop on the day a relative died. Thankfully, we don't have a grandfather clock in our home, so I don't have to deal with that pressure!

How about...... "LT tires will never work on a trailer, you have to use ST tires!"

So Long!
