|Sorry, that's seven years bad luck…
I want to know Britain's superstitions, for example a broken mirror, touch wood, a black cat and so on. Thanks.
Britain is a superstitious nation, or so it would seem. One survey suggests that half of British people are superstitious about walking under ladders.
Interestingly, three quarters use the curious phrase 'touch wood', which is related to an ancient superstition.
But what does the phrase mean? And where does it come from? Finn Aberdein and Jean Dong talk about some of Britain's favourite superstitions in today's Ask About Britain.
