1. Broken Mirrors

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Common superstitions are hard to believe in this day and age, but they still have a pretty big impact on some people. For instance, mirrors have always had both negative and positive connotations. They are said to be a representation of your soul. However, if you break it, as the superstition goes (most likely a larger one rather than a small one), you will have bad luck for 7 years. It's because it was believed that you were damaging a part of your soul by breaking the mirror. Yikes! To ward off this negative energy, spin around three times counter-clockwise to confuse the negative spirits. That is, if you believe in them.
