So...? Do you?

I personally don't. They probably originate to scare kids or something, and some of them even have a logical explanation. :)

I don't either and when you consider number even less so. #4 in Japan is pronounced "yon" but #4 can also be pronounced "shi" which translate as death. So, any Japanese who believe in superstition probably will not want to stay in say hotel room #4219 because it sounds like "shi-ni-iku" which literally translate as "You are going to die."

May I ask why? I just see a mirror as an object, nothing more.

Superstitions is kind of like some mythology, just a way people used to explain why certain things happened before they knew better. Apollo on his chariot and the sun rising and setting and the like. Now when someone gets cancer we understand a little why they did, but back before people knew what cancer even was--it would seem strange if suddenly someone who seemed just a bit under the weather up and died with no real fever or the normal 'illness related symptoms'. Most superstitions come from Scotland and the like, old-fashioned people whose cultures are deeply ingrained with myth and the occult. There probably is a certain amount of truth when it comes to some superstition--but the most commonly known ones tend to be the most ridiculous.

Nope, only believe in God. But my sis-in-law says that if you believe it it's true and if you don't it's not

Some, I dont' believe in God though...I think it's a lie, but that's just me. I don't believe in really cheesey SS...but I belive in the ones that could reallybe true!Lol if that makes sense to anyone but me.

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
We'd see the day when nobody died...

I don't believe in it, because no matter if a black cat cross the road or you walk under a ladder and so on, there are still small accidents happening quite often, you just become more aware of them if some of the superstition event happened earlier. A bit like the placebo effeckt

Murphy's Law but that's not so much a superstition as it is a proven scientific fact in my opinion.
