Do You Believe in Illinois’ Most Popular Superstition?
Are you superstitious?
Sorry, I had to.
I'm very superstitious. I was definitely that kid who avoided sidewalk cracks, held my breath past when I passed cemeteries, and other things like that. Now that I'm older, I see superstition differently. I also don't have the time or effort to give to avoid sidewalk cracks.
Turns out I'm not alone in believing these superstitions. A new study just revealed Illinois' most popular superstition. Here's what the study revealed for each state -
Turns out Illinois' most popular superstition is the good luck horseshoe!
Here's the top three most popular superstitions across America -
- Throwing salt over your shoulder
- Bad luck comes in threes
- Lucky Rabbit's foot
I definitely believe in throwing salt over your shoulder. (I also immediately clean the salt up that I throw) I'm also a firm believer in bad things come in threes. I've had so many times in my life where two bad things happen, and I just brace for impact because I KNOW a third bad thing is coming next. That was actually Wisconsins's most popular superstition.
One on the list I hadn't heard of is the "good luck lady bug". According to Pestdefense.com -
When a ladybug lands on you, it's considered a sign of good luck since you will be granted more patience and fewer burdens. Bug superstitions even say that if you are ill when a ladybug lands on you, it takes the illness away!
