    Lightbulb superstition

    cultural or just personal whatever it may be
    it is often mentioned in literature so which book or story would you most associate with superstition?
    any quotes included are most welcome.

    One that most spring to mind is

    the three witches in Macbeth
    ''for a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble. Double, double, toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble''

    which has correlation with superstition.

    it may never try

    it is just that
    good

    Interesting thread, cacian. Literary discussions have become so seldom on this site.

    I live in a country where there are many superstitions: avoid passing under ladders is one of them. On the other hand, here I have never seen an apartment building without the 13th store as is so usual in NY.
    I myself am superstitious about black magic. As the saying goes: "I donīt believe in witches, but they do exist"
