Amazing Superstitious belief: Do you believe in them?


Superstition is an irrational fear of what is unknown or mysterious especially connected with a tribe or religion. Every country has their own superstitious belief but i can tell you categorically that of all the superstitions i've heard, Nigerian superstitions are quiet hilarious (Maybe because i am nigerian) Anyways, I remember when i was still little my mum (most times my grandmum) never joked with these superstitions and she ensured you made ammend asap if you violate any of them. Anyways, I deemed it fit to share some with you. Check them out.
