I don’t think I’m superstitious but…

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?
