I don’t think I’m superstitious but…. guess what? When I saw the horseshoe embedded into this cement sidewalk in Wilkinsburg, I felt lucky. Like it was a good sign.
So if I am not superstitious, why would I get a sense of this symbol as being fortunate? Why are horseshoes considered symbols of good luck Here is one article I found on the subject
I heard if you hang a horseshoe you were to have it look like a U so the luck didn’t run out!
Do you walk under ladders? Do you open an umbrella in the house? Do you throw a pinch of spilled salt over your shoulder? Do you kiss bread before disposing of it if necessary? If a black cat walked in front of your path, would you worry? Do you knock on wood?
Just thinking about whether or not these things come to mind and do I react differently of just chalk it up to imaginary?
