[Forum Event] Defy Superstitions Day Reply:89| View:4579
Edited by loa 1 events at 2018-9-13 13:25


Are you looking for something to do today? Then ... break a superstition with us, because today it's Defy Superstition Day!  Have you noticed it's ... 13th of September (not Friday, though)? That's right, it's time to let go of all those silly apprehensions and superstitious beliefs and overcome your irrational fear from bad luck! Open an umbrella inside a room, walk through a ladder, let black cats cross your way, go out the same door you came in, change your sheets on a Friday, pass someone on the stairs.
If you're one among many who have superstitions you can't seem to shake, September 13th is exactly the day you can let go of some or all of them by doing the exact opposite of what you're told you should do regarding them. Let's get right into celebrating Defy Superstition Day!

Why is this a holiday? How are we going to celebrate?
Today is the day to brush off all or least some of those crazy fears that have been passed down, generation to generation. There are so many ridiculous and hilarious things that people still believe will happen or have happened because of tiny little events in their lives. You can't let these supernatural fears hold you back all your life and now is the time to just let go!  

A superstition is a belief that no matter how disconnected two events are, that one simple thing caused the other. It could cause something good or bad, but somehow it is supposedly the reason that these things happen. But if you break a mirror on accident, should you really be afraid of having bad luck for the next seven years? Are you going to go through the next seven years of your life just waiting for bad things to happen? Are you going to focus on everything that could possibly go wrong? If set on that, sure, bad things are going to happen eventually and ... you already have something to blame - that broken mirror! But unless you enjoy being worried all the time and live in fear, then just ignore these superstitions, at least for today, because it's nothing more than a mindset.
So, how can we celebrate today?  The name of the holiday today does tell you to defy superstitions, so all you really have to do is not let superstitious thoughts or ideas run your day today. You can sit around with us and tell us about the superstitions which affects or affected you through times. Write them down here and have a good laugh at the old superstitions that nobody really believes anymore and shake your head at the superstitions that people do still believe. Feel free to post about all superstitions you and all your friends ever believed. Let's all go ahead together and start defying our superstitions. Let's face the fears we have and take part in this "superstitious activity" (which we hope it'll bring not only a little bit of fun but it'll also make you have quite an interesting time!)  Have a great Defy Superstitions Day and enjoy letting your fears go!

How to participate in event:
  • You have to post at least one of the superstitions you know about or people in your region/zone/country do have (being it as silly or wacky or unusual as it may seem) . Post also one of your personal silly fears, apprehentions or superstitions.
  • You may come with pics, drawings, caricatures, witty comments, a stanza, some lines/lyrics in a song, funny quotes or whatever may seem proper to show or "illustrate" the superstitions you'll post about.
  • It is compulsory to also post your IGN, server name and number, platform, as shown below:
      eg. IGN: BlackCat
            Server: S13
            Platform: GTarcade
"We, as people, are not only very religious but we also believe in a quite high number of superstitions, ranging from the unlucky number 13 and the black cat to more funny and weird ones related to salt, umbrellas, and flowers.
Here is one of them . "Once you go out of the house, don’t return! Even if you forgot something at home, don’t go back to collect it. If you do, you’ll have bad luck all day." As for one of my own superstitions (which I do not mind about anymore now) here it was: "If your feet are swept, willingly or not, by someone else, you'll never marry!!!"
(The only one to worry about this now is ... my husband! )

Duration of event:
  • Starts: 13th of September
  • Ends: 15th of September

Where I come from, people tie red yarn around babys hand, to send evil spirits away. Also for the first 40 days, after the baby is born, the new mamma and the baby shouldn`t get out of the house. ALSO, if your guest is cutting their neils in your house - it means that they don`t mean you no good.
If you have ichy left hand - means you`ll get some money. xD

There is this superstitious belief in my country that that if you log into the guest book on a wake, you'll be part of the raffle draw on who's going to be next.

LOL.. obviously this is not true

In my country,"It is recommended that you store red onions, red chili and turmeric on the door of the house
because it will serve to protect your home and family from the disturbance of spirits and black magic carried out by bad people"
Even though onions, chili and turmeric are usually used as cooking spices ...

Rinchen, thank you for telling me about this event. The superstition in my country (Brazil) is. "Put inside your house an elephant ornament with its trunk up in the air and you will get a lot of financial luck"

In my country our elders have many superstitions, but the one that has most called me the curiosity is that when a family member dies, their children should not carry the coffin, because they say that afterwards they also die within a few months.

Here in the south of USA; if you hang a horseshoe in your bedroom, it'll help keep you from having nightmares :|

For some reason I have this superstition that odd numbers are bad luck, like when I'm playing LOA and if I have an uneven number of say like totem badges, it drives me nuts. In the words of Hall & Oates "I can't go for that, no can do" Lol.
