Not really, in that, I don't really think anything bad will happen to me because it's a certain day, or a black cat runs in front of me. But I had a VERY superstitious grandmother and great-grandmother, and I'll randomly find myself doing things to keep them happy even though my great-grandmother's been dead for 20 years, and my grandmother doesn't live anywhere near me to know what I do or don't do.

Some superstitions I'll keep, just because it's family habit -- the main ones that occurs to me is that you can't buy yourself an opal unless it's your birthstone (it's fine to receive it as a gift), and you never give a wallet or a purse without money in it (or else it's destined to remain empty).

I remember going through some serious hoops to get my mother to buy me an opal ring I wanted a long time ago, and "inventing" that I owed her money that she just didn't remember, and I "paid her back" and then commented on how I loved that opal ring, and sure wished someone had an extra $60 to buy it..... ROFL

Just thought I'd jump in to share that :)

I'm not superstitious, but I found Kelly's ring story hilarious!
