    I can honestly say I am not. How about you, Joy?

    Superstitious? My logic says no…. but Im careful under ladders because well its just common sense. Right? And black cats, well they are sweet until you cross them. Then they cross you and its curtains!

  3. Sue says:

    I use to be when I played sports. Ok, yes I am because every Sunday this football season I couldn’t watch the game with everyone else b/c our team would loose!!!! So, many a Sunday I spent at home by myself just to keep the winning streak alive!

    If I am going to say something good or hopeful I always knock wood, even if I have to knock my wooden head. Other than that, no.

    A little. Let’s just say I am 100% sure there is a lot that modern science hasn’t discovered; and some of it is embodied in “old wives’ tales.” Every so often the scientists test one of those old “superstitions” and find out it is actually true. And if you think about it, there is some logic to a lot of them. So, my thought is, what does it hurt if you touch wood when you think or state a hopeful thought?

    I also think there is a quiet undercurrent of superstition that lives on from my early childhood. Some things still make me uncomfortable even though there is no logical reason for it.

    But I’m pretty practial for the most part. I don’t burn candles or wear enchanted gems or any of that stuff.

  6. Joy says:

    I am but I’m not. I am sports-wise like Sue mentioned. I would wear the same thing bowling and the same thing for football games. I also knock wood like Elena mentioned but I’m wondering if it’s just a habit thing.

    I had a black cat that lived for 19 years so that didn’t spook me out and I will walk under a ladder or step on a crack or open an umbrella in the house and while I think they are fun, they don’t rule my life.

    Let’s see I went without salt for a few weeks when we moved into our current home because it is bad luck to buy it yourself or bring in any old salt. My aunt was nice enough to finally bring me some on her first visit! 🙂
    I also “knock on wood”, yell at the kids for putting shoes on the tables, throw a pinch of salt over my left shoulder if I spill salt. For me they are just a creature of habit thing. I grew up with my mom doing the same things and now I am seeing my girls start to do it!

  8. Joy says:

    It’s just fun isn’t it Just A Mom?

  9. Just a Mom says:

    Yep sure is! I think it gives me a sense of being a part of the past, the tradition of it. My mom did it, her mom did it and so on. It’s my little connection to them in a sense. 🙂

    Nope, not in the least.

    No such thing.

    Ditto the comment above

    Although I don’t believe it makes a difference I am to a point. I throw salt over my shoulder when I spill it, I still wish on 11:11, 2:22, 3:33….I know I’m weird! I think it’s fun and now Bailey does it…it’s for fun I think.

    I was brought up in a family that is very supersticious though all will deny while dodging black cats, walking around ladders… they always bust themselves though when they drop a knife or fork on the ground. From young I knew the words, ideas and thoughts – guess some of it stuck, perhaps I am a lark for tradition dunno…

    Do you have superstitions for the Vikings – if you dont paint your toes purple etc?

  14. Joy says:

    Do we have superstitions about the Vikings…..aaawww…..a “few!”
