I need to round up some stories of superstitious belief for a skeptics meeting tomorrow night. I’ve requested a couple books from the library about generic superstitions but I’d like to find some more around the world ones before then. That’ll be homework for tonight, methinks, and I’ll report on Wednesday night’s meeting on Thursday.

So any superstition? What about the Mexican La Llorona? She loomed large in my childhood. Source of all sorts of wickedness. Anything else I can think of is pretty mainstream. So is La Llorona, but, well, there’s my contribution! 🙂
Interesting. I found a version of the story at http://literacynet.org/lp/hperspectives/llorona.html that I think I’ll print out for the group tonight. That’s interesting. Was she was used to induce good behaviour out of you as a child?
