During the early ages of mankind, people made up myths and legends to explain the phenomena around them. They thought that spirits inhabited every nook and cranny or that gods watched over them as they slept. From these beliefs, the religion of these people slowly formed, becoming a coherent internally consistent mythology. But even though such small things lead to something so great, it did not mean that people forgot beliefs that they learned from others, or that they did not invent new ones. Over time, these beliefs became superstitions and seeped their way into everyday life. Your exercise is to invent three superstitions: A superstition for bad luck, a superstition for good luck, and a neutral superstition that just exists to be creepy. You can use the following questions as help. Where did the superstition originate from? Is there a story behind the superstition? What exactly are the effects this superstition causes? Can the effects mentioned in the superstition be countered? If so, how? Does the superstition have any requirements for it to take effect? How long do the effects mentioned in the superstition last? How well-known is this superstition? Is there any special object, animal or place associated with this superstition?
