  • If you sweep under somebody's feet they won't get married, I sweep under DH feet all the time cause he doesn't know that one.

    If you step over someone lying in the floor and don't step back over them they will die.

    If a bird lands on your window seal, someone in your family will die.

    If you tell a dream B4 breakfast, it will come true.

    If you change a pet's name he will die.

    There are many many more.

  • If you put aspirin between your legs you won't get pregnant.

    Black cat crosses your path, you will have bad luck.

    Walking under ladders=bad luck.

    If a lady craves a certain food and DH does not get it for her, the child will have a birthmark in the shape of that food on his head.
