Superstitions in England

As every country, England has some superstitions. It is the kind of very funny subjects you can talk about with your new friends at the English School in London.
In England, it is good luck to meet a black cat. So, if after your English Courses you are walking in the streets of London, don’t be afraid of seeing a black lovely cat on your way. On the contrary, English people think that it is bad luck to see one magpie.
It is also good luck to touch wood. For example, if you are talking to your English School in London’s friends about a project you really care about, just knock on a table, a chair, a door or any other wood thing you can find at the English School in London.
English people are likely to be afraid of seeing you crossing cutlery in your plate because it is synonymous with expecting a quarrel.
Finally, try not to break a mirror, especially on Friday the thirteenth because both of them are bad luck in England
Ask your new friends at the English School in London, and you will see that superstitions can be very different from one country to another.
