Meeting 9: Russian and Dutch superstitions

Kevin was very curious about Russian superstitions, due to the fact that he heard a lot of them during hanging out with me and a lot of Russian people in general. So this is the reason why we decided to take a such non-stardard topic for meeting number 9.

First of all, I would like to say that I have never thought about superstitions existence in Netherlands, so I was pretty intrigued about it.

So we found out that we have several superstitions in common surprisingly. They are: black cat crosses your way – bad luck, breaking mirror – bad luck, knocking on wood in order to prevent some bad things.

Kevin told me about Dutch superstitions more, because I haven’t heard anything about it. Superstitions in common are not counted. They are: horseshoe brings luck into the house, walking under the ladder brings bad luck, as well as, opening the umbrella indoors.


Honestly, it was very interested topic to be discussed 😉
