Superstitions en weird dinge

Hallo Julle, wel ek al soveel keer gehoor, gesien en ervaar, dat ek dink dit is iets wat ek graag met julle wil deel 🙂 Miskien is daar nog mense wat ook bietjie bygelowig is soos ekke, ander vind dit miskien baie vreemd en soms snaaks, maar maak dit van ons ‘n “mal klomp” of is dit ok om bygelowig te wees? Ek onder andere loop nie onder deur ‘n oop leer nie, en glo vir my as ek sout mors …. moenie agter my staan nie, want jy gaan sommer die hele soutpot in jou gesig kry …..

Ek het al soveel dinge bymekaar gemaak oor bygelowe en alles wat gepaard gaan met superstusie dat ek gedink het ek moet dit nou net met julle deel, verskoon maar die engels maar julle sal dit wel verstaan:

Bad Luck: Friday the Thirteenth – The Scandinavian’s believed that the number 13 was unlucky due to the mythological 12 demigods being joined by a 13th, an evil one, who brought misfortune upon humans. It was also said that Christ was crucified on Friday and the number of guests at the party of the Last Supper was 13, with the 13th guest being Judas, the traitor.

Bad Luck: Walking under a ladder – A leaning ladder forms a triangle with the wall and ground. Triangles represent the Holy Trinity, and violating the Trinity by breaking it (walking through it) would put you in league with the devil himself.

Bad Luck: Black Cats – In ancient Egypt, the Goddess Bast was a black, female cat. Christians, wanting to rid society of all traces of other religions, convinced the ignorant that black cats were demons in disguise and should thus be destroyed. In the process, they also destroyed the kindly ladies who cared for the cats, believing them to be witches. Being demons, a black cat crossing your path would create a barrier of evil, cutting you off from God and blocking the entrance to heaven.

Bad Luck: Spilling Salt – Salt used to be an expensive commodity used mainly for medicinal purposes. For this reason, spillage was to be avoided at all costs. The idea that it is unlucky to do so probably stems from the belief that Judas spilt salt during the last supper. Throwing spilt salt over the left shoulder is linked to its medicinal use. If it could not be administered, the next best thing was to throw it into the eye of the evil spirits that brought sickness upon us. These spirits were thought to lurk behind your shoulder, waiting for an opportunity to strike.
