Most of superstitions and beliefs has a distant myth. Although superstitions
gives the impression of quite easy and simple thing, the truth is that most
of superstitions and beliefs derive far away from the past. Not bad at least
imagine a few of them because once upon a time many people were actually
easier to qualify for the ban through various modes of life, than to explain
why something is good work and some do not. Although, Chinese Feng Shui
even has an explanation for these superstitious beliefs.
Even in my early age, I was strongly attracted with superstitions, beliefs and old wives' tales of ancient peoples. I am quite sure that I have remambered everything I have ever heard about this subject.
One day, on coffee break, I decided to write down all these old superstitions I have ever heard. The second day I decided to find out what are the beliefs of other people from around the world. Each housing etate has its good and bad guys, their experiences and stories which can be used as lessons of lives for others. Based on this experience I decided to find out what are the superstitions and believes of other people from around the world. Faced with the fact that many of these believes possess hidden meanings, their reasonable qualification is only possible with serious treatment of this. Many of these superstitions and beliefs have their hidden meaning and reasonable justification only if we think about them seriously. Everything that is written here belongs to the pure superstition: valuable aspect for historians, antropologists and ethnologists and this is the reason why it deserves to be preservated.
Here you can find various superstitions about money, journey, health, marriage, pregnancy, baby, children, Halloween, New Year, horoscope. Also old superstitions and beliefs about animals, black cats, plants, human relations...etc. And different superstitious stories that witches on coffee break could tell to us.
For someone, all these are just old wives' tales, but for those who believe it is the truth.
Generally speaking, this website has two different objectives. The first is to save the old superstitious beliefs and the other is to entertain and stimulate readers to think about the time that has passed or somewhere still going on.
At the beginning, I'll post a superstitions of the European nations, then the Chinese superstitions, Feng Shui and so on.
