Read the short text below and try to understand its meaning.
There are a lot of different superstitions all over the world. Some people believe in all jinxes, omens and curses. Others reject the existence of all superstitions. But I think that only little children can believe in such old wives' tales.
As for my region, there are some interesting superstitions here. For example, some students believe that if they shout: “Freebie, come! “ at night, they will have the best result in their exams. This funny superstition always makes me laugh! In addition, we believe that if a black cat runs across the road, it is bad luck. And also if you cross this road, you will have many reversals. Frankly speaking, I believe in this superstition. It always seems to me that because of the black cats, some good people can’t have a luck streak!
