Superstitions and Rainbows

Are you a Superstitious person  OR  would you rather believe in the pot of gold at the end of the Rainbow?

You will be surprised at the superstitions that certain famous people believed in.

Christopher Columbus believed the sharks that were following their ship signaled a bad omen!

King Henry VIII believed that Anne Boleyn had cast a spell on him to make him fall in love with her.  Anne Boleyn was ultimately beheaded!

Queen Elizabeth I was very superstitious!  She had a magician on her payroll named John Dee who helped her in making decisions with regards to state affairs and war plans!

Adolf Hitler was insanely superstitious.  He believed in the major importance of the number “7” and was known to seek advice from both astrologers and fortune tellers!

Rather than spend my time believing in superstitions; although I do walk around an open ladder, I prefer to focus on and wish for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Life has so many worries, misbeliefs, superstitions, and unhappiness if we allow ourselves to dwell on the obstacles and negatives before us.

Why not turn around and look for the Rainbow!  They are not hard to find if you will only take a moment and look!!!

    Love all your nuggets of information! the culture I grew up had a taboo for almost everything you did, some were pretty hilarious. I remember my cousin throwing salt on me and my baby daughter when we returned home after sunset one day. It got in my eye and I almost dropped the baby. It was meant for my protection from evil spirits not safe footing while carrying a sleeping baby though. I prefer rainbows, they make me believe in magic.
