I decided to visit an old peoples home. My grandma had numerous superstitions, and i began to wonder if beliefs were directly related to different generations. Here are some rough line drawings i did of the old people while there (they didnt mind)

Here are some of the more obscure superstitions they gave me.....

Green is unlucky
Never clip your toenails on a Tuesday
If you head footsteps behind you, never turn around: it may be the dead walking following you
Never face the foot of your bed towards the door, for that’s the way the dead used to be carried out.
Its bad luck to light three cigarettes with the same match
Ghosts love the smell of lemons
Your reflection in a mirror is your actual soul,therefore breaking the mirror brings bad luck.
If the flame of a candle or fire turns blue, it means a spirit is in the room.
