    Exploring Superstitions. “Superstition is a credulous belief or notion, not based on reason or knowledge. The word is often used pejoratively to refer to folk beliefs deemed irrational. This leads to some superstitions being called "old wives' tales". It is also commonly applied to beliefs and practices surrounding luck, prophecy and spiritual beings, particularly the belief that future events can be foretold by specific unrelated prior events.” This project explores all aspects of superstitions. It informs the public of the common “old wives tales”, by illustrating them and placing them into a book, which also has an explanation of the superstitions. It focuses mainly on the superstitions that link to luck, and how doing certain things will bring either good or bad luck. The project includes a book, which illustrates the most common, and the most outrageous superstitions that people have followed for years. Read Less
