Today's Task: 1/8

As for today's task, do it. The best way to overcome or move past a superstition is to research where it came from. This helps quell the fantastical and merge it back with reality.
For example, do you know why we "knock wood"? It goes back to a time when people believed in tree nymphs and tree-dwelling sprites who would play tricks on you (think Shakespeare's Puck). So, if these people were talking about anything unsavory, in order to not give the malicious sprites bad ideas, they would knock the wood or trees to override their voices and drown out what they were saying. Silly, right?
Here are a few more things you can try toeing the line of luck with today:
Cross paths with a black cat.
Walk under a ladder.
Break a mirror.
Hang a horseshoe upside-down.
As for myself, given today's weather, I have already opened an umbrella indoors. :)
