Six Cuban Traditions and Superstitions
a belief or notion, not based on reason or knowledge, in or of the ominous significance of a particular thing, circumstance, occurrence, proceeding, or the like.
Good Luck: Put a glass of water in a corner or on top of the refrigerator because it will counter any negative energy and bring you luck.
Meanness: If someone is being mean to you (or you have an annoying boss) and you want it to stop, put the name on a piece of paper, place it in glass of water, and store it in the freezer.
Happiness: When you open a bottle of any kind of alcohol, put a little in the corner of the room behind the door to share your happiness with the saints. Don’t be selfish, lest you make them angry!
Attraction: When you want to attract someone (e.g. a romantic partner) or something (e.g. a job), put sugar in a glass of water and put the the name of your object of attraction on a piece of paper in the water. As a result, you will sweeten whatever you want to attract.
Evil: If someone is being really mean to you put that piece of paper with the name on it in boiling water.
Beyond Your Control: If you have an exam or visa interview or meeting with a lawyer (basically any important paperwork type event that is out of your hands), light a candle and leave it on. Therefore, it will show you the way.
