Introducing Supersition Saturday. Every Saturday I will be posting about the myths and facts on popular Supersition . Are there any you frequently use or hear? Like the number of Magpies, or black cats or touching wood. These all come from an ancestral origin - but how much they original stories and sayings have changed may suprise you somewhat. However it's always an interest of mine to find out why we say them - if you also share this interest or are just mildly amused to find out the origins, please add a comment of the ones you use or hear most.
