    I don't walk under ladders-suppose to bring bad luck
    I don't put my purse on the floor-suppose to mean you will go broke

    Funny you should mention that!  I once put my pocketbook on the floor and a friend grabbed it and told me never to do that again, since it means I will have financial woes.  So that's it!  I should begin making lots of money soon.

        yes. I consider my ticket a loser if the clerk says GOOD LUCK! Somehow I think it jinxs the ticket. Everytime I leave and they dont wish me luck, I win! So I get out fast before they wish me well.

        Other superstitions are: Picking up a penny, No matter heads or tail. I pick it up because its one more penny then I had when I started the day! I just make sure I aint pickin it up in the middle of a busy street! Somehow that would be bad luck! *grin*

        Never herd the pocketbook one, I figure money at my feet will reach my hands someday, or so my grandma said. So I consider it a good omen.

          Is believing that if you don't play your tickets, they will fall, superstitious? If so then I am superstitous, as far as the ladders, mirrors, voodoo dolls, black cats, I always tempt fate to see if it is true. I will walk under ladders, etc. to see if the theories hold water with immediate effects, and they don't seem to.  But if I don't play that number, sure enough it'll fall!

              Funny that Jarasan and The GameGrl both had several "superstitions" I never thought of until I read their posts.

              Jarasan, I'm am afraid to skip a drawing, since I feel my numbers might hit.  Even 5/6 in Lotto averages more than $5,000.  I know the chances are slim that on that one night my numbers, after all these years, will suddenly be drawn, but I always make sure I buy tickets on Wed & Sat, even if I skip other games that week to save money.  I'm not sure that's really a superstition, however.

              GameGrl wrote that she doesn't like to be told "good luck" by the clerk.  I'm the same way, but I figure there's not much I can do about it and just smile back and say thanks. I guess it's mainly when it doesn't sound sincere, since they're trained to say it. 

              I do prefer buying my ticket when no other customers are at the counter, but that's not always possible. I don't know if that's a superstition or just a personal preference since everyone is in such a rush around here.

                I am superstitious. If someone is going out the door as I'm going into the store, if they are standing in my way. I feel that it's negative and I don't want to go in the store. Or if they walk across in front of me,  or if they are standing beside or behind me I feel uncomfortable.

                I would rather avoid these stores.

                  I guess I am superstitious. I saw six numbers in my dreams. I know which one was the mega number. For last three months I've been playing with those numbers. Yeah. I am superstitious.

                        As for the Black Cat thing, I held that belief for years, until my daughter brought home a giant black cat.

                        He constantly crosses my path.

                        (maybe that's why I haven't hit the big one as yet.....mmm)

                              I have 2 black cats and I have won money recently, so I don't believe in that one.
