India definitely is'nt. here are the reasons

In Greece, people use to carry in their wallet a little bone of a bat, since it's believed to protect from the evil eye. Every typical Greek house has a cactus growing near its door - it saves from troubles. Any Greek knows that if he sneezes, somebody thinks about him.

In UK it is believed that you would be lucky if you meet a black cat. Unlucky are those who break a mirror, see a crow. Not one Englishman will open his umbrella near the door or will put his new shoes on the table.

Any Irish knows that a werewolf is afraid of water. The Irish place metals on high levels. Blacksmiths are respected, since they are considered to dispose of bad spirits and diseases.

Italians think you're lucky to hear a cat sneezing. It's not good if a bird enters through your window. If an Italian sees a nun, he will seek to touch a metal, so that the luck doesn't leave him.

In China broom is given a special attention. They believe each broom ...more

No one is free from superstition in some form or other.
A person who thinks that he is free from this is the most superstitious
