These Superstition book mirrors were considered extremely valuable and possessed mystical attributes. However, in the Chinese culture it symbolizes death. Chapters Superstition 8: Tom's bracelet of rattlesnake rattles protects him from cramps.

Almost universally, this superstition includes that the bad luck would last for seven years.

Yet how can something that Superstition book not yet exist be present in the physical world? The only suspense was the Superstition book identity and that was a surprise until a revealing moment at the end. It is noted that one way to avoid the bad luck associated with breaking a mirror is to take the broken pieces and bury them underground and under the moonlight. God Bless You.? Another belief exists that the horseshoe, because of its crescent shape, has the ability to ward off the evil eye. Yet another early belief about ladders was that when leaned triangularly against a wall, it signified the Holy Trinity?
