It’s no secret that Wendy is a little superstitious.
• Don’t ever split a pole when you’re walking with someone. Wendy follows that rule.
• Wendy’s worn her flower ring for every show since the six-week sneak peek.
• Chewing gum before every show and saving it? Well, that ritual stopped back in season 7.
There are tons of superstitions out there. Here are some that you should definitely be aware of!
Never take an old broom along when you move
Legend has it that an old broom carries more than just old dust and dirt. It also carries all of the negative aspects of your life from your previous home. Out with the old, and in with the new!
Catch a falling leaf on the first day of autumn for good health
Autumn is a beautiful time of year to be outside and enjoy the colors, and the cool breeze. After the leaves fall and the winter sets in, cue chronic winter colds! Catch a falling leaf on the first day of autumn and you won’t catch a cold all winter!
Don’t stir anything using a knife
We’ve all been there. You get your morning tea and you sit down for your morning dose of Hot Topics. All you have in front of you is a fork and a knife for your breakfast. So, you decide to stir your tea with a knife. Don’t do it! There is a saying that goes, “stir with a knife and stir up strife.” Someone in your life, maybe even you, will become angry, or have a disagreement with someone. Nobody wants that.
A cricket in the house is a good thing
For whatever reason, a cricket usually decides to start chirping away as soon as your head hits the pillow. This prompts you to go into a frenzy trying to find said cricket so you can catch some shut eye. Next time, let the cricket be. As far back as 500 B.C., crickets have been a symbol of wisdom and prosperity. Let the cricket chirp all night, then play the lottery in the morning.
Lock eyes with the person you are clinking glasses with during a toast
Shout out to all of our French Wendy watchers! This superstition is widely known in France, as well as other parts of Europe. Locking eyes with someone during a toast is an indication of sincerity to what you’re toasting. It’s also customary to clink glasses with each person individually, without crossing arms with anyone. What happens if you don’t do these things, you might be wondering? Apparently, seven years of bad sex.
Hope the first butterfly you see this year is white
There’s lots of symbolism that comes with butterflies throughout the years. Luckily, most of them are good. Even luckier, would be a white butterfly, which symbolizes spiritual purity. If the first butterfly of the New Year you see is white, you’ll have good luck all year. We assume this superstition works best in warmer climates. For those of us that have to deal with the brutal winter, you’ll have to wait until spring to find your good luck butterfly.
Never place your purse on the floor
Ladies, we know it’s more convenient to place your purse on the ground, rather than in your lap. Aside from the fact that the floor is filthy, you’ll most likely lose money in the near future if you leave it on the ground. Honestly, you’ll be lucky you don’t forget the purse altogether! Placing your purse on the ground is essentially like giving your money away. We could all use some more cash.
