Most people have heard that a broken mirror brings seven years of bad luck, but intact reflectors are also ominous — just think of ill-fated characters like Snow White, Narcissus, and Dracula.

The legend goes that the glass can steal your soul. In fact, Victorians traditionally covered mirrors when someone died, in case the deceased's spirit gets trapped inside.

New mothers and porch sitters take note: the Irish have long believed that rocking an empty chair invites dark forces to come sit in it. If the chair moves of its own accord, that's even worse — the malicious spirit has already settled in it, and may bring death to the family.

There's no denying moving is stressful and hard work. What's even worse is the fear of bad luck, evil spirits or negative energy lurking in your new home (yikes!). Try one of these techniques superstitious people use to protect themselves — then tell us if it works!

An old Irish tradition says you should always exit through the same door you entered, or else you'll have bad luck. But don't worry: After that first time you can use the door that's most convenient. 

Here's a worthwhile way to use your change: Scatter coins in the living room on the first day you move in and prosperity will reign while you live in your new home — at least, according to Philippine tradition.

According to the dictionary, Superstition is an irrational belief arising from ignorance or fear. There are superstitions for almost all aspects of our daily lives and most have unknown origins. Sometimes they are logical (for example, don’t walk under a ladder) but most of the time they are ridiculous. Some people can become controlled by their superstitions (such as the fear of walking on cracks) which is very unhealthy. Here is a list of 20 weird superstitions.

It was late evening in the small town of Stocksbridge, Sheffield on Tuesday, 8th September 1987. Two security guards that had been hired to patrol the Stocksbridge bypass where they were needed to keep an eye on the building site.

Peter Owens who was their boys received a very strange and panicked phone call. He decided that due to the oddness of the call he would make his way down to the site to see what on earth had happened, once he had arrived he found the two large security guards in near hysteria. He sat them down and got them to tell him how they had become this panicked, as it was quite unlike them. This is the horrifying story that Peter heard that dark, cold evening out by the desolate building site.

What was stranger though, was not just that there were no children but there was no sign that anyone had been there at all. No footprints, no noise, absolutely nothing. So they stood and look around them bewildered. The explained to Peter that they were more confused than frightened at this point in time, it wasn’t until the next morning when they got chatting to some of the builders what they had seen the night before that they started to become scared. The builders mentioned to them that at the same time that the children had been seen they had in fact heard children laughing away and chattering as they were resting in their caravans.
