Drop a knife? Get ready for a visitor.
Here are a few more superstitions:
If an eyelash falls out, put it on the back of the hand, make a wish and throw it over your shoulder. If it flies off the hand the wish will be granted.
If the bottom of your right foot itches, you are going to take a trip.
Pulling out a gray or white hair will cause ten more to grow in its place.
If you secretly put your toenail clippings in a glass of lemonade and make someone drink it, then that person is supposed to fall in love with you.
The dropping of a knife foretells the visit of a man friend in the near future.
Itchy Nose? Beware — you’re going to have a quarrel with someone.
Cross your fingers to make wish. Bad luck is trapped at the point where the two fingers meet so when we cross our fingers, we stop the bad luck from escaping and allow our wishes to come true.
God Bless You. During the sixth century, it was tradition to congratulate people who sneezed because people then believed that sneezing helped expel evil from their bodies. Years later, when a plague took over Europe, and people began sneezing violently, the Pope passed a law. Since sneezing meant that the person was going to die of plague, people were required to bless the person who sneezed.
