Facts about Superstition

Knock on wood, don’t walk under ladders, four-leaf clovers bring good luck…

Superstition is a bit like everyday magic, and belongs to our cultural heritage. In this book, the reader is introduced to different phenomena which, in popular belief, brought good luck or bad luck. Some of this has survived to this day, although we probably don’t take it entirely seriously anymore. Here we learn what can bring fortune or misfortune and what might be behind the beliefs.
