As we are
Cabuleros us? Yes, and a lot. In Argentina, everyone has their personal superstitions, their little rituals, but there are also shared ones, those that are already widespread and are part of our daily habits. There are those who take them very seriously and there are those who are not so much... but neither to risk challenging bad luck. We tell you the 5 cabalas that every Argentine must implement to scare away bad luck:05 1) Touch the left/a  No need to be more specific. If someone invokes a possible misfortune, whoever says it and those who listen to it will hopelessly touch the left (or the left, in the case of the ladies). Does it work? Probably not, but it is not necessary to take certain precautions. 2)   Avoid making certain statements  If we're driving and traffic is strangely fluid, saying it out loud will cause everything to stop suddenly. If the job is calm or the baby is asleep more than two hours ago, that unexpected grace period will end as soon as it is mentioned. What's more: you have to avoid even thinking about it. 3)   Don't say hello to the birthday boy first  To tell someone “happy birthday” the day before is an unforgivable mistake that the anxious and the distracted should avoid committing, because it would bring a year of bad luck to the honoree. And no one wants to live with that burden. 4) Desiring “crap “No luck, no joy, no success. If someone is about to take an exam or attend an important work meeting, they are desired “crap.” This is mainly the case in the artistic environment, but it also applies to other areas. 5) Do not change the place in front of the TV  Especially in World Cup times (although it also runs for the local championship dates), the place from which we watch a match is crucial to guarantee the triumph of our team, and we must respect it to rajatabla.
