14. I'm not superstitious, knock on wood.
Trying to remember some of the superstitions I grew up with:

Black cats are bad luck. This one didn't make to much sense to me, since we almost always had one.

It was bad luck if you didn't hold your breath when passing a cemetery. I always wondered if this counted if you were passing some place like Arlington.

Opening an umbrella in the house was a major no-no.

Breaking a mirror brings 7 years of bad luck.

If you have an itchy palm, that means you're coming into some money.

If you feel a sudden chill, it means that someone is walking over your grave.

Being 3rd on a match is bad luck.
