                                            Aircraft

"The crews and passengers of the world's airlines observe innumerable personal superstitions, carrying lucky amulets, ritually following the same routine before each flight and so forth.
Plane crashes are said to.occur in groups of three, though crews are unlikely to comment on this prior to take-off as it is considered unlucky to talk of crashes at this time. Crews also have, as in the theater, a prejudice against real flowers being allowed on their aircraft and sometimes ensure that the seatbelts of vacant seats are neatly crossed so.as not to provoke invisible evil spirits.
Touching the wood of a living tree is generally recognised as a good defence against misfortune in the air, and extra protection will be afforded to a crew member who empties his pockets on to the ground as a sacrificial offering after making a safe landing."

                                     Gabriel's Hounds

"Spectral pack of dogs that haunt the skies of Northern Europe in company with the Wild Hunt. Anyone hearing or string the hounds, who are particularly associated with stormy weather, is doomed to die in the near future."

                                            Wild Hunt

"Spectral hunt, complete with Hellish black hounds and demonic huntsmen, that is said to haunt the skies over Northern Europe.
Stories about this Satanic hunt date back as far as pagan rimes and alleged sightings of it roaring across stormy Winter skies have always inspired dread.
According to legend, witnesses of the Wild Hunt risk being snatched away and carried off to some infernal region."

                                            Need-Fire

"The sacred fire around which many of the traditions associated with the ancient ceremonies of Midsummer's Eve and other festivals revolved.
The need-fire was usually ignited by friction and then carried into the neighbouring homes to rekindle the fire in the domestic heart, which would then be kept continually alight until the time of the next festival.
It was important that the man who ignited the fire was innocent of any crime, and he was prohibited from carrying anything made of metal on him when going about this sacred duty.
Symbolising renewal and the never-ending cycle of seasons, the need-fire was revered in many ancient European cultures and various rituals surrounded its honouring on auspicious dates in the pre-Christian calendar. Worshippers jumped around the flames in order to get the full benefit of their purifying properties, and livestock was driven through the still-warm embers for similar reasons.
Such fires would also be lit at other times of the year when livestock were afflicted by disease or the locality was troubled by plague or some other calamity. Though forbidden by the Church back in the eighth century, the practice is still occassionally reported in the twentieth."

                                   *****October 25th****
                                                    Red

"As the colour of blood, and therefore of passion and vitality, red is reputed to have strong supernatural properties and is particularly valued as a defence against witchcraft and evil spirits.
Because of this, red is sometimes selected as a propitious colour to wear at important ceremonies and religious rituals around the world. Lengths of red thread feature in a variety of spells, being tied around limbs affected by rheumatism, around the neck to staunch nosebleeds and to cure whooping cough, and otherwise employed to treat a range of ailments.
Tying a loop of red thread around an animals horn or tail will protect it from witches and from the threat of the Evil Eye, and pre-pubescent girls may be given red ribbons to wear in their hair as a firm of protection against misfortune.by the same token, red ribbons are sometimes tied to the prams or to the interior of new cars.
Red is an unlucky color to use when writing a love letter, and ted flowers such as roses and poppies may also be considered harbringers of ill fortune, especially if they shex their petals on the ground like blood. There is also a long-standing prejudice against giving bunched of red and white flowers to hospital patients as these represent death.
Many people consider meeting a red-headed man or woman unlucky, especially at New Year, presumably on the grounds that such individuals are widely thought to be hot-tempered or untrustworthy. Red-haired children, meanwhile, ate reputedly born to unfaithful mothers."

                                               Doctor

"Though modern medical practitioners may strive to distance themselves from superstitious practices, they themselves remain the object of superstitious speculation.
Among the traditions that survive onto modern times are thenitiins that consulting a doctor on a Friday is ill-adviced and may lead to the patient's death; being the first patient in a new clinic or even the first in the morning is a guarantee of a cure! And that a doctor's bull should never be paid in full for fear of tempting fate.
The best doctors of all ate those who are the seventh child of a seventh child and so have special healing powers."
