Snow Day Superstitions
 
Do you or your kids have any Snow Day superstitions? Have they worked?

Me and my friend did ALL of these superstitons and we had a snow day the next day..... I'm sorry, but I just don't believe in superstitions anymore. If you have something to say about this, please do, but I just want people to know that ALOT of these don't work and it just jinxed us.
Wait, what?

ETA:
Can someone explain this? Is it even explainable? It's giving me whiplash:
1. She followed all the superstitions and they worked.
2. She no longer believes in superstitions.
3. She says many of these superstitions don't work.
4. Using the superstitions jinxed her.

Leaving aside the other logical problems with that statement, "jinxing" is a superstition.
