by Danielle Walsh

Danielle has written a great slide telling us about some great superstitions.

Are you writing a romance? 

How about having the main character give the love interest an orange.  It is believed giving someone an orange will make them fall in love with you.

Visited by a strange man?

Did the main character drop a knife?  Superstition says if you drop a knife a man will visit.  Drop a  fork, a woman, and a spoon a child.

Bad luck at the dinner table?

Don't give parsley at the dinner table.  Superstition says it will bring bad luck.

These a just a few she mentions.  Watch the entire slideshow and add a little spice to your book.
