Old Superstitions

If you like superstitions, or are superstitious, this site is fabulous, fascinating, and full of old superstitions. With many categories, such as: Good Luck, Bad Luck, Animal, General, Card, Acting and Stage, Baby, Christmas, New Year, New Home, Wedding, Hair, Halloween, and Death superstitions. And each section is chocked full of superstitions, a lot of which I had never even heard of.

*Saying “God Bless You” when somebody sneezes: When the great plague swept Europe, sufferers began sneezing violently which was a sign of death. The Pope therefore passed a law requiring people to bless the sneezer. At the same time, it was expected that anybody sneezing would cover their mouth with a cloth or their hand. This was obviously to stop the spreading of the disease, but many believed that it was to keep the soul intact. Sneezing into the air would allow the soul to escape and death would be imminent. Up until this time, the opposite was true. Those who sneezed were congratulated, as it was believed that a violent sneeze would expel evil from their bodies.

And if there is something you want to know if there is a superstition about you can just type in your query in the search engine and click “Go” and it will search the database for you! Like say you had a question about a superstition involving a dog. Just type the word dog and then click go. You will come up with a whole list of superstitions like:

*At one time a dog that had bitten someone was immediately destroyed to protect the person from rabies (even if the dog was healthy).

*Meeting a dog = good luck (especially Dalmatians)

There are tons of superstitions for you to check out on this site, in a lot of different categories, so there is a little something for everyone.
