#SuperstitionSat Highlights: Love, Courtship & Marriage

Hello again and welcome to another round of the highlights of our sessions. Yesterday’s theme was Love, Courtship and Marriage. Our first highlight was posted by Rachel Deering, who told us of a superstition concerning wild rabbits – to spot one looking at you, either by yourself or as a couple, means good luck in love. I saw a bunch of wild rabbits in a field once – something which I’d never seen – and sure enough, my catmate appeared shortly after, so it must be true! Or, you know, coincidence…

The second highlight goes to Suzie Selenophile, who shared a tale about the Granny Kempock Stone – couples would dance around it for luck before their wedding ceremony, and the ritual appears to continue today, which is thrilling to hear!

Our last highlight goes to Wunderkammer, who is always ready to delight us with some doom and gloom, isn’t it? There are a lot of dark superstitions out there, but this creepy love spell really took the cake yesterday. A content warning: human remains. I’m skipping to the next paragraph now!

That’s all for this week! Join us next Saturday for another theme:


What strange beliefs, charms and lucky rituals did the ancient peoples of our world have? Are there any superstitions that have survived into our days – like the one about the Granny Kempock Stone, for example? I can’t wait to see what you share!

Until then, take care of yourselves!
