There are some old superstitions that were quite seriously heeded in their time. Among them: Never eat a dinner with 13 people seated at the table. Never cut off both ends of a loaf of bread – because the Devil will jump from the bread and ‘fly all over the house.’
Other old superstitions: Do not wear red and green at the same time.
People with red hair bring about unlucky circumstances.
Always pick up a comb from a table with its teeth facing away from your body.
Never watch a child sleep or you will be risking the death of that child.
