Russian Superstition

In this modern life, do all Russian still believe in superstition, if so could you tell me what kind of superstition do you believe most and why?







If a black cat crosses one's way it means that he/she will encounter some trouble on this his/her way. One should immediately spit three times over his/her left shoulder and don't go the way that the black cat had crossed.

Thanks Igor))

If you want to shake my hand, you can never ever do it through the door: you have to come in, otherwise we will quarrel.

If you come back to ur house just after you left - look at the mirror, it's for your own good.

If you're sitting at the corner of the table, you won't be married for 7 years.

If a fork falls, a woman is going to come, if a knife falls, a man will certainly appear.


One of the superstition among the russian students is to stick your head out the window overnight before the exams and shout loudly :"HALYAVA". ("freebie" in english)

It's supposed to bring you luck )))))

I'm not supertitious, because I believe that being superstitious brings bad luck.


If you put your purse on the floor, you lose your money. Sounds ridiculous, but I never put my purse on the floor.

Other superstition I have is to bring my money in a red wallet. I learned this of the chinese.


I'm not good enough in English. If a correction is necessary, go ahead.


Thank you.
