Ok, so it's the 1st of September and whenever it comes to the 1st of the month I'm always reminded of that old superstitious ritual that I got embedded into my brain during my time at University by my paranoid housemate...and that is the ritual of saying 'white rabbit, white rabbit, white rabbit' out loud in the morning before you get out of bed.
Even though I don't really believe something bad will happen if I forget to chant white rabbit x3, I still make sure I do it and if I remember half way through the day that I haven't done it (like today), I do have a little panic just in case it's real.
My only real superstition is magpies - If I see a lone magpie I have to look away immediately and cancel my bad luck by making a ring with my thumb and finger then breaking it with another finger. Madness? Probably.
It got me thinking - what other superstitious rituals do we all follow despite knowing they are utter nonsense?!
