Strangest Superstitions From Around The Globe That People Still Believe

Itchy Palms

20. Itchy Palms

If you are in the Caribbean, then scratching your palm could prove to be virtuous or disastrous. No, we are not talking about any health issues or scientific conundrums, but more of a mythical problem.

In the Caribbean, people believe that scratching your palm could mean that either you’ll earn a lot of money very soon or will soon be indebted, depending upon which palm you scratch.

Scratching the right palm means that you’ll soon receive money, whereas scratching the left palm could land you in the red. A possible explanation for this superstition could be that right hand holds active energy, whereas the left hand holds passive energy.

Hence, which palm you scratch determines the incoming or outgoing of money.
