Anti-jinx Superstition...

"knock on wood" my mother, father, grandmother, cousins, everyone, would follow this. My family never had the best of luck, and we always said how it could be worse...(and it usually happened) so we'd knock on wood, everytime, even if it was fake wood...lol

I want to say superstitions are silly, but "knock on wood" is something I do on a regular basis! I've never heard of the hat on the bed thing. You never put shoes on a table or they will hurt your feet!

My great grandmother would never allow people to put hats on the beds. She said if yo leave a hat on a bed it means someone is going to die. It spooked me as a kid and to this day I don't allow hats on my bed.
