What Kind Of Superstitions Do You Have?

Superstitions are plentiful all over the world, even though there is no rational reason for these beliefs. There are the popular superstitions everyone has heard: Friday the 13th is unlucky, black cats are bad omens, crossing your fingers is good luck, and so. However, many regions around the world have very specific superstitious beliefs you may have never heard. In some parts of Turkey, it is a superstitious belief that a person chewing gum at night is actually chewing rotting flesh. In Italy, it is unlucky to lay a hat on a bed, for it is a sign of death. Also in Italy, 13 is seen as a lucky number, which is the opposite of what is believed in places like the United States.
