In Greece, it is strictly believed that all good and all evil
will come in three's. My informants gave me an example to help me
understand:
"If you steal something, you may get away with it once, twice, but
the third time you will get caught."

Submitter comment: Even though I don't believe in this superstition, I have
experienced it on a few occasions.
