As I move forward in my journey to writing using Siberia I hope to explore some of these superstitions. One that I found particularly entertaining and possibly useful for my stories is this one from a blog back in 2016.
"In case a knife would fall down a man should arrive, if it is a spoon or a fork it should be a woman. If you don’t want that this person comes, you should knock three times with your knife on the side of the table and say “stay home”." ~Sarah from My Siberian Story
If you are going to write about a place...superstitions seems like a great way to start which for me has lead to a gold mine of ideas for stories as I move forward.
Here in the US, Friday the 13th is either celebrated by those who dig into horror movies or dreaded by those who find it unlucky.
My favorite Friday the 13th superstition: Don't let a black cat cross your path.
This apparently has to do with witches and the thought that witches not only use black cats for a familiar but can shape shift into one and possibly curse your path. At least that's what I grew up on.
What is your favorite Superstition- or the one you believe in the most?
