Mistletoe

Mistletoe is considered lucky to hang in the house at Christmas.Mistletoe is not allowed to be used as a church decoration because it is associated with paganism.

Walking around poles, etc

When my husband and I are walking and we go on opposite sides of a telephone pole, parking meter, what have you; he makes me come back and go around on his side. He says otherwise it means something will come between you.

Sounds like it has worked so far.

It's the "Bread and Butter" thing...
Quote:
When a couple is walking down the street holding hands and an obstacle (like a lamp post) comes between them you say bread and butter...thereby keeping the union until the hands meet again on the other side of the lamp post.
Here is a link to a bunch of superstitions...

This is just crying out for a one-liner but I can't think of one!

I have a funny story about pregnancy and superstitions. The couple next door to us are from Hong Kong, and she got pregnant with her first just a few months before I did. When we were still trying to conceive, I asked her for any secret Chinese tricks to get pregnant, and I was seriously expecting a magic potion of some kind.

She said: "We used an ovulation kit from Walgreen's!"
