IVP3, Nikki Sales: Superstition
For my project, I made a book dealing with people's superstitions and beliefs. What irrational things do people believe in and why? Are they really irrational? The book has two sections: BAD LUCK and CONTROL FATE. First, I created 4 pages of different things that bring people bad luck: a black cat crosses your path, walking under a ladder, braking a mirror, and opening an umbrella indoors. Second, I created 4 pages of different ways to control your fate, or to get rid of the bad luck: knocking on wood, throwing salt over your left shoulder, forwarding chain emails/text messages, and crossing your fingers.
