Wow. You sure responded to that one. Fun to hear so many different viewpoints–we’ll have to have more of these discussions.
The consensus seemed to be:
Full moons ARE different from other moons–I’ve always figured it was simple physics, ie, if the moon pulls at the tides, why wouldn’t it pull at little ole water-filled us? (This last one, according to my MoonPhase app, was the Wolf Moon. Don’t you love that name?)
Black cats, like all small furry folks, are wonderful. 🙂
Some of you told great stories about things your grandmothers believed. (My mom could never stand to see us play with crutches, I recall, because we might wind up needing them sometime.)
And you brought to mind one superstition I do believe in, because I’ve seen it happen so many times, growing up in a small town the way I did. Big events–especially deaths–happen in threes.
Or maybe we just segment them that way. 🙂
If you could pick one hero, from one novel or from history or whatever, and marry him, who would you choose?
