What would you think if a black cat crossed your path on your way to your soccer game? Or if you accidentally dropped your mirror and it shattered into a million pieces?

Good evening judges, parents and students. How many of you ever heard that it is bad luck to spill salt or that it is good luck to say “Bless You” to a person after they have sneezed?
