What do you guys think of Indian superstitions?  Are you a superstitious person? Do you know how they came about?  Do any of you have any stories/situations that prove or disprove them?

Have you heard of any strange and totally mind-boggling superstitions? If so, share them.

 

Here are a couple that I know of:

      -  bad luck if black cat crosses your path

-    good luck if black dog crosses your path

-    bad omen if someone sneezes right before you are about to start or do something

-    if your eye lid pulsates, it can be a sign of upcoming good or bad luck depending on whether it is your left or right eye.

 

Am I superstitious?... hate to admit it but I am sort of, depending on the situtation...

I'm sort of superstitious but not like all the time.
I do sometimes believe in the eye thing, but I strongly believe in the evil eye(i don't know if that counts as superstition). But I don't believe in the black cat coming your way or stuff like that.
