Most Interesting Thing About Superstitions
Through researching my topic I have come to learn some unusual superstitious beliefs and practices but I also learned that every practice fits the time period they were created. For example during the Black Plague in Europe there came a saying "If you have a piece of bacon your harvest will thrive, especially if the meat was stolen." I found the origins of superstitions interesting. A lot came from writings in the Bible or Greek philosophy. But also some things like "If you step on a crack you will break your mother's back" came from experiences or hardships that the people of the time when through. A lot of superstitions arose from religion and their need to keep away the devil or evil spirits.
