magical thinking

Ever crossed your fingers for luck?

Avoided the number 13?

Taken a lucky object into an exam?

Wore something borrowed & something blue on your wedding day?

Avoided stepping under ladders?

Owned a lucky pair of socks?

Worried about tempting fate?

Touched wood to avoid bad luck?

Never opened an umbrella indoors?


Even in this sceptical age, we still use magical thinking and need a bit of magic in our lives.

What do you do for luck? What superstitions do you have?

Our upcoming exhibition, Spellbound: Magic, Ritual & Witchcraft, asks us to examine our own beliefs and rituals.
