WHEN YOU BELIEVE IN THINGS THAT YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND: SUPERSTITIONS ACROSS CULTURES

When traveling abroad, you're bound to encounter beliefs that may not make sense to you. Some of these are harmless superstitions, such as the Venezuelan belief that wearing yellow underwear on New
Year's Eve will bring good luck. While some of these superstitions might sound silly or inconvenient, the best advice is to go along
with them whenever possible.

While visiting relatives in Japan a while back, I tried to clip my toenails after bathing (in the evening). They did not take kindly to that - my mom said that they thought it was bad luck. So, the nails waited until morning.
