I don't believe in any of them, but I think they're cute. I love how you put the magpies in there!

Lol ya me and my magpies huh! I don't find magpies unlucky at all, I think they are personally lucky to me (years of saluting them maybe?)

I get bad vibes about broken mirrors and spilling salt particularly, and do the thing of throwing a pinch over my shoulder.

I think black cats crossing my path are lucky not unlucky (I've heard it both ways) and the number 13 is one of my two lucky numbers, the other being 22.

I have the laugh at seeing the one magpie one. I think that's lucky. If there is only one then its less likely to dive bomb your head! We have some very nasty maggies in the spring.

The only thing I really consider unlucky is the umbrella inside

None of the above shoulda been an option. I don't believe in luck & such.

I say the mirror and the umbrella.
I've been told that if you leave the mirror lay where it fell for 7 minutes then that takes the 7 years away. Not sure if there is any truth to it, but that's what I do. The umbrella just gives me the heebie jeebies.

Black cats have always been lucky for us. So I totally don't get that one.

I am superstitious about some things, but most of my bad luck has come from bad choices by myself and others.

I voted "walking under a ladder"...just because knowing my luck it would fall on me if I did.
