Good Luck Superstitions :)

Hallo al julle wonderlike mensies – wel hierso is deel 2 van superstitions, die positiewe ene nou. Ek weet baie glo nie daaraan nie maar party van hulle is nogal skreeu snaaks en interresant :

Good Luck Superstitions 

Fingers Crossed – By making the sign of the Christian faith with our fingers, evil spirits would be prevented from destroying our chances of good fortune.

Knock on Wood – It was believed that good spirits lived in trees, and that by knocking on anything made from wood, we could call upon these spirits for protection against misfortune.

Saying God Bless You When Somebody Sneezes. When the great plague swept Europe., sufferers began sneezing violently which was a sign of death. The Pope therefore passed a law requiring people to bless the sneezer. At the same time, it was expected that anybody sneezing would cover their mouth with a cloth or their hand. This was obviously to stop the spreading of the disease, but many believed that it was to keep the soul intact. Sneezing ‘into the air’ would allow the soul to escape and death would be imminent. Up until this time, the opposite was true. Those who sneezed were congratulated, as it was believed that a violent sneeze would expel evil from their bodies.
