Hello Trudi and Readers, here in.Brazil there are some superstitions, for example: At new year the people have to wear white clothes because this bring good lucky and prosperity but if the some person wear clothes with other colours, it doesn’t meaning bring the person bad lucky.
The famous superstition about unlucky is, if the person see the black cat cross the road or the black cat through underneath a ladder in front of you, it means unlucky.
Some persons take with them a rabbit paw, because they believe this bring a good lucky.
Most of superstitions come from religious and some people believe you can cure disease like Asthma. The ritual called in Portuguese “Simpatia” (Sympathy) make the person who have as Asthma, spit in the fish mouth and throw away the fish in the see. It means the fish take the Asthma off and go away in the sea.
More one is, the plant that produce pepper, I don’t know in English, some people believe this plant protect them against negative energy come from other person, in Portuguese called “Mal olhado” (Bad looked).
Here in Brazil, the Friday the 13th is another superstition. I think this is global, isn't it?
There are others, but, I have to research because some superstitions are regional.
Trudi, You ask me about the place where I live. When I got married I rent a small apartment with one bedroom. Two years later I bought my first apartment. This is a small apartment too but it has two bedrooms. Ten years later I safe some money and I bought my first house with three bedrooms in the second floor, garden and garage. For years late I sold this house and I bought other. The new house has a small place for my office.
I have no photos from my new house but I’ll take photos a put into blog.
My time up it’s 01:00 am and I ‘m so tired.
Trudi tomorrow I’ll fix the blog about “Coffe addict”. Today it was impossible because I had to study math with my son.
