One of the most widely-held is that it is unlucky to
open an umbrella in the house. It will either bring
misfortune to the person that opened it or to the
household. The person who opens an umbrella in
fine weather is very unpopular.
It is very unlucky to walk under a ladder. If you must
pass under a ladder you can avoid bad luck by
crossing your finger and keeping them crossed until
you have seen a dog.
The number 13 is said to be unlucky for some. And
when the 13th day of the month falls on a Friday,
many of the people prefer to stay at home.
The worst misfortune that can befall you is breaking
a mirror. That will bring you seven years of bad luck.
This superstition is supposed to have originated in
ancient times, because mirrors were considered to
be tools of the gods.
And at last there is a superstition of touching wood
for luck. This measure is most often taken if you
have said or done something wrong or stupid.
And black cats in Great Britain are connected with
good luck in spite of the fact that them refer to
witches and sorcery (колдовство). The animal of
the Witch is a black cat. If the black cat crosses
over the road there will be a success.
But in America this superstition is a unlucky.
