See A Penny, Pick It Up, And You’ll Have Financial Luck?

AMHERST, N.Y. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – With the economy in the toilet, you may have to turn to superstitions for financial luck.

Those suffering from the economic crisis can double their dollars by following simple money myths that are said to bring cold, hard cash.

If you’re looking for a huge chunk of change, there’s a saying that claims, “Peel an onion, burn the skin, play the lotto, sure to win!”

Also, if a brown spider is creeping around your house, don’t squash the lucky bug because it means money is coming your way.

In Japan, it’s believed that placing a piece of snake’s skin in your wallet reaps riches. Just don’t go skinning your own snake, because killing a slithery serpent brings bad buck luck.

Following money myths may be helpful during these tough times, although superstition skeptic Joe Nickell warns, “They’re not based on factual evidence. It’s just magical thinking, not rational thinking.”
