SUPERSTITION OF FOOD

SNEEZING WITH FOOD IN YOUR MOUTH A SIGN OF BAD LUCK. IF THIS
HAPPENED QUICKLY TAKE FOOD OUT OF YOUR MOUTH AND THROW IT AWAY.

Submitter comment: THIS SUPERSTITION OF FOOD WAS PASSED DOWN FROM MY GRANDMOTHER'S
FAMILY. THE REASON THIS CAME ABOUT WAS BECAUSE THERE WERE TWO DEATHS
IN THE FAMILY WHICH COULD NOT BE EXPLAINED. I MYSELF DO
NOT BELIEVE IN IT.
