Most Popular Superstitions Around The World
Unlucky smoking triad
From the Crimean War through World War I it was considered bad luck among soldiers to light three cigarettes with one match. It was theorized that by the time the third cigarette was lit a sniper would have had the time to have the soldier in his sight ready to make the kill. However some believe that the superstition may have been invented by match tycoon Ivar Krueger to drum up more business.
