Are you superstitious? Do you understand the ‘justification’ behind some popular superstitions? Here we go:
A horseshoe has seven holes, which is a lucky number. Since it is made of iron, it can send bad spirits away.
Wish upon a star
The Greeks believed that the stars were rising or falling human souls, and to make a wish on them would bring luck.
“God bless you“
People believed that the soul would escape the body during a sneeze and the heart would momentarily stop. That saying “God bless you” encourages the heart to continue beating.
