Old Superstitions.

Nice site, hama. Kind of reminds me of my Grandmother Swan, who was very superstitious and constantly quoting little things at me. I wish they also had the stories behind the superstitions.

It's bad luck to be superstitious.

Ahhh, my old favourite one is there!

"It is bad luck to light three cigarettes with the same match."

Animal Superstitions: Weasel:
Seeing a weasel - bad luck
Keeping money in a weasel skin purse - financial security


See? I told you hama7 believed in weaselnomics!

a man ... who comes on a horse, is considered particularly lucky.

I've never come on a horse, but I've gotten pretty excited a few times.
