If you find a horseshoe spit on it and throw it over your head and you will have good luck.
If you pick a flower on May Eve it is said that the fairies will come and take you away with them.
If you see the "Headless Coach" it is a sign that you going to die.

If you walk under a ladder with your fingers crossed you will have bad luck.
If a scissors falls on the floor you will get a disappointment.
If walk over a person on the floor that person will grow no more.
If the palm of your hand is itchy money is coming to you.
