– Another popular hero of superstitions and signs is salt. For example, to spill a salt leads to a quarrel. If someone has prepared salty food, then he (or she) is in love.
– Russians are always very afraid of putting the ‘evil eye’, i.e. to bring misfortune in words or actions. For example, when someone pronounces aloud any undesirable event developments, then in order to avoid this others say him: ‘Knock on wood’ and ‘Spit’. In the last case, it is understood that the person will spit three times over his left shoulder. Thus we avert a disaster.
– Also a lot of signs are associated with the dishes. It is believed that it’s good fortune to break dishes by chance. And if you drop a spoon or fork on the floor – expect a woman to visit you, if it’s a knife – a man.
– Are you going to a trip? First, do not plan leaving on Friday – the journey will not be successful. Put everything in order in the apartment beforehand, and just before the leaving you should have a sit. ‘Let’s sit before the road’ – Russians say, and everyone sit down – one on the sofa, and others on the bags. Being quiet for a while, suddenly someone remembers that he had forgotten something important. It’s a useful custom, isn’t it?
