Lesson Transcript

Stepping on a crack in the ground
Did you know? It's believed in the U.S. that stepping on a crack in the ground is considered bad luck.
This superstition stems from one variation of an old children's rhyme that goes "step on a crack, break your momma's back."
So if you don't want to break your mother's back, don't step on a crack!
Step on a crack, break your momma's back. Step on a line, break your momma's spine.
Rabbit's Foot
In the U.S., it's believed that the left hind foot of a rabbit brings good luck. In many stores, you can buy a rabbit's foot dyed bright colors and attached to a keychain.
Rabbits are often associated with abundance due to their breeding habits. This tradition may have Celtic roots or may even come from African-American folklore.
"Humans like to keep a rabbit's foot keychain for good luck, but rabbits prefer to have all four feet."
