The internet is an amazing tool, and sometimes, sometimes, Facebook connects you to sites that some wouldn’t ordinarily visit. Bon Appetit is one such site: http://www.bonappetit.com/  We love this article about food superstitions, for example: Knives: passing a knife directly to someone is not advised, it will bring discord between you and that person. Instead, place the knife on a table and the person can then take it. Another ‘problem’ area with knives is the giving or receiving of knives as gifts. It is generally not advised, but the way around it is that the person RECEIVING the knife, must give a coin to the person giving the knife. Who knew? Take a look at all the other superstitions listed, it’s really just a little bit of fun on a Monday afternoon: http://www.bonappetit.com/entertaining-style/pop-culture/slideshow/20-food-kitchen-superstitions/?slide=1
