I'm not a big believer in superstitions but I do believe there are signs everywhere if you pay attention. I think we make our own luck with the choices we make in our lives.
On my wedding day we had a native Hawaiian singer serenading us on the beach. After our vows the singer pointed behind us saying "look, a double rainbow, this is a sign of good luck." We looked at it as a blessing on a very important day. Another couple in full wedding attire had left earlier due to a slight shower but I'm sure their day was just as wonderful.
I see signs in nature. Like a sunrise reminds me of a new beginning, the rain is cleansing and blooms speak to me of growth. If I was superstitious my mother's back would have been shattered into pieces with all the cracks I've stepped on.
I found a few superstitions I had never heard of so I thought I'd share a few.
Animals can talk at midnight on Christmas Eve
To cure a sty, rub it with a gold wedding band
An acorn at the window can keep lightning out of the house
It is unlucky to rock an empty rocking chair
Smell dandelions, wet the bed
Wearing an opal when it is not your birthstone is bad luck
A sailor wearing an earring cannot drown
After receiving a container of food, the container should never be returned empty
Tying a knot into a handkerchief wards off evil.
The spouse who goes to sleep first on the wedding day will be the first to die.
