Strangest Superstitions From Around The Globe That People Still Believe

Broken Mirror

4. Broken Mirror

Though the superstition is said to have existed from the time of ancient Romans and is still prevalent in Europe, countries like India is full of people who greatly believe in this myth.

The myth brewed from an ancient Roman belief that stated that broken mirrors were caused by poor health. Romans believed that broken mirrors brought bad luck that stayed for seven years – the time period, as believed, for the sickness-renewal cycle.

However, some Romans found an easy fix to the “broken mirror” problem. According to them, one could steer clear of the bad luck by collecting all the broken pieces of the mirror and burying them in the moonlight.
