As we are
Are we gentlemen? Yes, and a lot. In Argentina, everyone has their own personal superstitions, their own little rituals, but there are also those shared, those that are already generalized and form part of our daily habits. There are those who take them very seriously and there are those who don't... but also those who don't risk challenging bad luck. We tell you the 5 cabalas that every Argentinian must implement to scare away bad luck: 1) Touching your left hand There is no need to be more specific. If someone invokes a possible misfortune, those who say it and those who hear it irremediably will touch the left (or the left, in the case of the ladies). Does it work? Probably not, but it is not superfluous 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 slow down suddenly. If work is quiet or the baby has been asleep for more than two hours, that unexpected grace period will end as soon as you mention it. What's more, you should avoid even thinking about it. 3) Not greeting the birthday boy first Telling someone "happy birthday" the day before is an unforgivable mistake that the anxious and distracted should avoid making, because it would bring a year of bad luck for the honoree. And no one wants to live with that burden. 4) Desire "shit" No luck, no joy, no success. If someone is about to take an exam or attend an important work meeting, you want "shit". This happens primarily in the artistic environment, but also applies to other fields. 5) Do not change the place in front of the TV Especially in World Cup times (although it also runs for the dates of the local championship), the place from which we watch a match is crucial to ensure the triumph of our team, and must be strictly respected.
