I printed it out! Now about that hazelnut cherry bread...

I think one superstition that might just be a fact is if one don't have sweet potatoes in some fashion for the holidays one will have a bad attitude in the coming year....so please folks get those sweet potatoes in the oven...
Thanks for the tip about the music! I'll be checking the npr website for info on our local schedule...

Every red car or truck I have owned has been destroyed in a horrible accident. I no longer will purchase one in that color, and I will try really hard to avoid driving one.

My wife is big on black-eyed peas on New year's day. Supposed to bring good luck.

During my USAF flying days, it seemed that I had a real close call every time I washed my flying suit. In consequence, I would wear it until it was white with salt. Didn't smell, though ... the sun and low humidity always kept it dry. Must have worked ... I never scratched an airplane or myself although I had 2 formation mates crash; one fatally..

Some are silly.... some are real...

The silly ones first:

I can’t list those. It is bad luck to call a superstition silly.

The real ones:

You BETTER have Black Eyed peas AND Greens on New Years Day.
The peas are for good luck, the turnips or collards are for financial prosperity.
Even better with old fashion cornbread.

Never, ever, open an umbrella inside.
My mother will have a hissy fit.

Never pick up a found penny unless the “head” side is showing.
Tails side up is bad.
Heads side up is good luck.

Speaking of hats;
Cowgirls may wear a cowboy hat in bed whenever it pleases them.
This may in fact be a sign of getting lucky.
Cowboys who wears hats in bed are just dorks.

seems more like a reality

In the fire service it seems like when there is a FULL moon we get more than our share of wacko calls. And we don't usually notice it until after the run and we say check it out it is a full moon Debbie

The Full Mooners. You see it in hospitals, nursing homes, and places mentally unstable people gather, like shopping malls.

Definitely agree with the full moon phenomena. Our ER and L&D becomes overloaded. Happens with eclipses too.

Twenty-two OR's, and no OR 13. We decided against it because of general public perceptions of the number. Funny thing, we DO have a recovery bed 13.

When someone asks for the salt shaker, it's bad luck to set it on the table once you pick it up to pass it. It must be placed directly in the person's hand.

I had a boss once that spoke about "3 tie days"... he knew if it took 3 ties to get his necktie correct it would be a bad day, one of those where everything goes wrong... So, if something goes wrong for the third time ... we figure it is a 3 tie day! (Besides, my hubby learned from one of his great instructors years ago while learning to fly... if something goes wrong or you make a mistake once, keep going, if something goes wrong or another mistake twice... while still on the ground ~ don't go flying that day, the third one will get you in the air!

I don't know if either one of those is superstitious, but they seem to "work"...

I have also heard that bad luck comes in threes, and if a fourth incident occurs, it is not a fourth incident, but the beginning of another set of three.

My only superstition is that if a woman asks if something makes her look fat...

Saying yes is unlucky and possibly painfull.

I don't think that is a superstition but a reality statement.Based on experience.

Or California.

I've also seen full mooners hanging out the back windows of moving cars from time to time. Most frequently in CA. Generally ain't a pretty sight...

Oh... and the horseshoe over the door thing? It has to be hung so that it makes a U. If it's hung upside-down, all the luck will run out.
