Open this only if you are superstitious

Funny thing about superstitions.

You may have some quirky superstition or ritual you follow, but superstitions are really “prevent” mechanisms.

They’re behaviors you make sure you complete ahead of time, but I don’t think most people really sit back and then blame responsibility for their success or failure on a superstition, right?

I am not a superstitious person, but I do have a couple of rituals I follow, only around this time of the year.

For starters, it’s really important to me that my wife and I are getting along on New Years Eve. So regardless of what’s been going on — if we’ve had some stress with the kids or whatever — leading up to that time, I like to make nice. Eating humble pie is very appropriate here.

I figure, if you can’t get along with your spouse on New Years Eve, you’ve got lots of problems in store for you over the next 12 months.

And I hate problems, and I do love my wife dearly, so this all makes sense, right?

I also have this strange belief that whatever you’re doing on New Years Eve, or whatever kind of karma is going on around the 31st of December and the 1st of January, sort of dictates the tempo for the remainder of the year.

I know, I know… this is absolutely stupid. Kind of like believing what your psychic told you, but like I said, this is about superstitions, not about the latest scientific findings revealed in Discover Magazine this month.

So for me, that means I like to make some money during this time, and I like to be romantic with my wife (Hey, I’m trying really hard to keep this PG-rated.). Yes, this is sort of an extension of my first superstition, but this is MY wacky thought-process, so I’m allowed, right?

This year I was fortunate that I was able to not have to deal with stupid thoughts about how I didn’t blow any good fortune I’m deserving of, because I wasn’t able to adhere to my 2 silly superstitions.

How about you? Do you have any superstitions?

Any silly rituals that you try and obey from time to time?
