Things I am Superstitious About

I'm not naturally a superstitious person but there are some things I still do out of habit from childhood..

- kissing my hand then touching the ceiling of the car when driving through a red light. this is meant to stop the light from turning red while riding underneath the light


- holding my breath when driving/traveling past a graveyard/cemetery. I don't always do this but every once in a while I do it without even thinking about it. a second weird nature.

-twisting an apple stem to the alphabet, which whatever letter it comes out on is the first letter of your future husband/wife. Another one of those second nature things, I do it without consciously thinking about it.


and a few that you might not even realize you are doing, but that we all do, which technically are superstitions

-blowing out our birthday candles on the first try

-crossing our fingers for good luck

-wishing upon shooting stars

-knocking on wood to prevent something from happening

-saying g-d bless you to someone who sneezes.

The whole superstition world is kind of a funny thing, some just get ingrained in you from society and your family. Others people are truly afraid of what could happen, or adopt superstitions as they grow older.

  1. That's so funny, I don't even think about crossing my fingers for good luck, or saying bless you after someone sneezes, I just do it! I guess it does become part of us and then we don't even think about when we do it! :)

  2. I totally do that apple thing without realizing it too! Forever on the yellow lights, my stepmom always says if you hit a lot of yellow lights it means you'll GET lots of kisses...

  3. I hold my breath out of habit while driving under tunnels. That is funny how we do a lot of those without even thinking about them!

  5. When I was younger I used to do the holding my breath when passing a graveyard, and going though a tunnel, but have you ever tried while in traffic?! Not good! I've heard of twisting the cap of the soda can, and the letter it falls off on would be your future wife/husband's name. I totally forgot about saying G-d bless and crossing my fingers. Some things really do just get ingrained in us!

  6. I've never heard the apple one! There's this bridge near my mom's house where there was a massive accident when we were young, and we all hold our breath while driving over it. Still do that when I go home!
