About the Book
In Superstitions, Max Cryer explains the origins of many of the things we commonly say and observe and why we continue to include them in our lives: kissing under the mistletoe, the unlucky number thirteen, the significance of the bridal bouquet, saying 'bless you' after sneezing, the hanging of a horseshoe, the danger in opals, the Leap Year proposal. So many aspects of our lives are coloured by superstition; now you can discover the reasons for them in this witty and informative book.
