My mom has this superstition that you can't give a knife or other sharp object (razor, letter opener, etc.) as a gift or your relationship with the recipient will be severed soon after, and she insists on giving you a token amount of money (like a penny or a dollar) if you do give her something sharp or pointy. And she makes her kids do the same, even if it's just a thing like if I had an extra paring knife and my sister needed one so I just give her my spare and say keep it--Mom says my sister has to give me money in return.|
My father had a lot of weird car-related superstitions, supposedly from the road rally culture, the main one being never buy a green car because they're bad luck/you'll get in a fatal crash.
Does your family have odd superstitions like these?
