My mom is an endless source of superstitions. I think most of them were to keep my brothers and me in line.

Never accept a mirror as a gift unless you want evil energy to bounce on it and hit you.

Finish all your rice or the leftovers will result in pimples (e.g. five rice grains = five pimples).

Do not pick money off the ground because it is there for a reason and it might have bad energy.

Do not switch seats when you have already started eating. The amount of times you switch a seat is the amount of times you will get divorced.

Aha, I 100% believe that theory. lol. Some parents are just smart enough to come up with these things. xD.
Like, scare their children to prevent them from doing bad things. "If you don't stop that the Boogieman is going to come after you."

I used to always toss salt behind my back when I spilled some (which was very rare), sometimes I still do. I picked it up somewhere (I don't remember) as a kid, but not from my parents. I know it is a very old custom though. I heard it may go back to biblical times...to ward off evil/bad luck or the devil or something like that.

Italian? My family does it all the time, I've been told it's a Sicilian thing.

To add onto those, my mother use to tell me "don't swallow the watermelon seeds otherwise they'll grow in your stomach and come out of you butt"

Recently she gave me a Jade bangle for 'protection & wellbeing' also it to find 'a nice husband' because apparently wearing it will help you find a potential partner XD

When I was a child, I used to avoid stepping on cracks out of fear of breaking my moms back. I also used to avoid counting to seven and stopping there, wearing hoods indoors, and opening umbrellas in houses.


Same here, I used to do all that. I also used to avoid walking under ladders, making sure that knifes never crossed over each other and never putting shoes on the table.

Almost makes me miss being a child. Believing fantasy and magic was fun. Then reality hit hard.

I know right, everything was more fun when we were kids. Now things are just boring and not as fun as they were back then.

I've heard of it, and it's kinda true, I got a lighter and put it under his hand and suddenly he shrugged a little and peed on my friends bed! Lol! My friend got so pissed
We did that to replace the warm water gag, and what do you know. It's more psychological than anything else.
He just needs to be asleep, fat, and have a crimson chin. Lol

Yeah, that's when life started being crappy, boring, and I became a disgruntled (angry) teenager......but I got over it......eventually. .
