Our ancestors lived in perilous times, not knowing what would happen from one day to the next. They faced sickness, death, and suffering—the likes of which we can only imagine today. One of the only ways they found to protect themselves was through rituals, the practice of doing things in a particular order. In the same way, certain practices became superstitions—a belief that doing things in a specific fashion would lead to either a positive or ill-fated result.

These superstitions have passed on from generation to generation, sometimes for centuries, through word of mouth and folklore. They have become ingrained in our cultures, in our personal mythologies. We often don't even question where they came from or why exactly we practice them.

Or perhaps you aren't a subscriber of superstitions, having chosen to allow the scientific and rational thinking of the era we live in to override those "old wives tales" that belong to a different time in history.

Either way, their background is fascinating. And you may find yourself saying… Well, just in case.
