Since here in the States it’s getting close to Halloween. Some people have a superstition of having a black cat cross your path will bring you bad luck! Are you superstitious? I’m not superstitious, but I believe in wive’s tales!
I’ve never met a person who wasn’t superstitious in one way or another, though many don’t realize that they are. As for black cats, they don’t worry me. In fact, I have one and she is a total sweetheart.
Some superstitions are based on fact, though. “Red sky in morning, sailor take warning. Red sky at night, sailor’s delight” is an old saying that is a superstition. However, it is based in fact. Red sky in the morning often gives a hint that a storm is coming in, and a red sky at night can often mean that a high pressure is building that will hold storms at bay for a while.
