Not really. Irish wear a lot of green. A lucky clover is green. So,basically it means good luck. Also you might just be superstitious. love and peace funnygal709 :) Actually the phrase did indeed refer to Bad Luck. There's also a variation on Murphy's Law: 'If it can go wrong, it will. 'Tis the luck of the Irish."
actually, eating too many bananas will cause you to camp out on the toilet. they're mostly potassium, fiber, and sugar, in that order

They aren't, but I wouldn't fuss over it. I'm one of those peoplewho believe in bad luck. But black cats aren't. They just thinkthat because in the cartoons witches always have black cats.
Technically their is no such thing as bad luck so no. But in superstition terms as far as I know breaking a mirror is 7 years bad luck. So if you broke one RUN THE HECK AWAY FROM IT LIKE USIAN BOLT.
In the British theatre it is bad luck to say "Macbeth". It is normally replaced by "the Scottish play".
Bad luck is a thing that people try to avoid.Bad luck is when your life suddenly is bad. For example you were planning to have a picnic the next day.When you wake up its nice and sunny but as soon as you open the door the sky turns grey and it starts to rain and like when you eat pineapple it turns bad.
It's bad luck to walk under a ladder, for a black cat to cross your path, to break a mirror, and the number 13 is unlucky.

If you buy a banana in Europe, changes are almost 100% that your banana has been travelling by boat.\n. \nSea transport has always been very important to the organisation of a banana exporting.\nFrom the nineteenth century, the banana trade has basically connected tropical producing countries with northern hemisphere markets. The earliest connections were from West Indian islands to Britain and France, and from the Caribbean coasts of Central and South America to the United States.
This is a song about Jamaicans loading the banana boats and waiting for the 'tally man' to count their load so they could leave and go home.
\nA song by a black man based on a traditional song sung by black Jamaicans. Soooo racist. NOT.
Not in the least. The starboard navigation light is green and many decks are painted green.
The Answer can be found in the history of Trinidad where the banana boat song was a traditional Jamaican song. They loved The Belafonte version and won't argue about copyrights. They just love music in that style
YES it is so dont change the name It is bad luck if you dont follow the proper renaming ceremony Here is a link that will help, trust me, make sure you do the Ceremony. I have seen people have some serious issues when they didnt.
I have never heard that it is bad luck to rename a horse. Horseshowever are intelligent animals and are able to distinguish thesound of their own name when it is used. Although it may not beunlucky, it may mean the horse is confused or unresponsive when youtry to get him to do things.

Crows can be bad luck if they are in a group of three. One crow by itself doesn't mean anything.
There are many stories, some saying that ships hauling cargo (among them bananas) would sink and that the predominate feature on the surface was yellow bananas. I read that in Florida, charter boat captains have banned all things banana. No lotion with the word banana on it. No muffins with the offending fruit and esp. not the banana its self. Here is another story of the tale. Around the 17th and 18th century trans-ocean crossings were very dangerous endeavors for Captains, crews and passengers aboard wooden sailing ships. There were a very high percentage of vessels that sank in these times. Ships often sailed routes that would take them near tropical islands, where they could replenish with food and water. Passengers, explorers and crew would purchase crates of bananas from local islanders. Banana crates were have said to contain more than just this good fruit. They sometimes had spiders, snakes and other creepy crawlers taking up residence inside. These critters would then find there way into all the nooks and crannies, the bilge & bunk rooms and multiply. Causing moderate to serious problems aboard a ship at sea. It order to combat this, Captains began telling people that bananas are very bad luck and the vessel will be successful by not having bananas aboard. If you know sailors they are a superstitious lot.
1.the force that seems to operate for good or ill in a person's life, as in shaping circumstances, events, or opportunities: . 1. 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. Using the following definitions, it is purely circumstantial on whether it is "bad luck to believe in superstition". It also depends on how you meant it. If you are asking "Is it bad luck to believe in superstition conceptually?", then directly I would say no but indirectly it is certainly a possibility. Belief in belief may not effect a behavior (and therefore a particular outcome in a given situation) very much but it may be a basis for another belief to develop that does indeed affect your behavior. As for another possible interpretation of the question such as "Is it bad luck to believe in any particular instance of a superstition?", that would be totally based upon the context. It would depend on what the superstition is, to what degree it is believed and then upon the setting. A superstitious belief such as reading books is bad luck wouldn't be that much of problem if you lived hundreds of years ago and books weren't as common place as they are now. It would also be more detrimental if you were at a school or a library than if you weren't one. Also the degree to which you believe that books are bad luck, if you think they are just a minor thing and can easily overcome it and pass your English class would be an entirely different (and conceivably better) outcome than if you thought books were really evil and should be burned and therefore you went to your local public library and set it on fire. To put it simply: Belief in superstition in general may not necessarily cause a bad outcome but may foster other superstitions that do affect said outcome more. Belief in a particular superstition may affect the outcome of an event based upon the degree of belief, the setting (time and place) in which the belief propagates and then the subject of the superstitious belief.

the albatross is said to represent good luck to mariners. when they see a sea bird (albatross) land is near. it has been thought of as bad luck from an old poem where a man shoots one down and has to wear it around his neck by his shipmates, for ruining their good fortune. he is said to have had terrible luck from then on.
No. It merely means the lizard lost its grip on the surface to which it was clinging. It is not necessary to look for special meaning in ordinary occurances.
You can expel bad luck by several methods. If you are familiar with the principles of Feng Shui, you can arrange furniture, mirrors, wind chimes, etc., to bring good luck into the home. Another method is to thoroughly clean each room, followed by carrying a lighted candle through every room, claiming the space as your home and announcing that only godly spirits and good luck may dwell there. Welcome good luck and beneficent spirits according to your own religious / family traditions. One final method would be to smudge your home with either sage or sweet grass, then sprinkle sea salt in every corner of each room and beneath each window. Bless and protect each doorway with olive oil, again claiming the space according to your own traditional faith.
yes. The spider's soul will take 5% of your soul unless you say his name is sacred.
it is not proven either way, but believed to be bad luck. It depends on whether you called heads or tails before the coin toss!
First of all, it depends whether your religious or not. With religion comes teaching and morals for success and liberty. God, however is the most facial thing in a belief to good luck in life, ask the master, ask the person who invented such design. If your aren't religious, then have good Karma, a belief in Hinduism, good thoughts help your present reality and bad thoughts/action make it bad. My suggestion is to belief in a power much greater like God, and ask him, do good, give charity, make others happy and so will you. Science couldn't have made us however, the big bang started with 2 atoms, how did they come if there wasn't anything there. Such design and creation is a shame for us all and that's what i call people, say and I belief, someone says and they belief. My name is Daniel, I'm 13 years, hope this man. Good luck with anything you need.! Make sure you help overs, and others will help you, famous phenomenon, what comes around goes around good luck.
Only exists to those who are superstitious. If there is a good, it must have an opposite.
In Greek mythology the dead are believed to forget their corporeal lives after drinking from one of the rivers leading to the underworld. It is customary to toast the dead with water, symbolising this voyage to the underworld, and when making other toasts if they are made with water it is seen as wishing bad luck, or even death, on that being toasted.
In Asia and in most countries in the world, peacock feathers are seen as a token of good luck and well-being. For some in a few areas in Eastern Europe, peacock feathers are a symbol of a bad luck, as they represent the feathers worn by invading Mongol warriors. The eye-patterns of the peacock's tail feathers gave rise to the peacock's nickname "the bird of 100 eyes," which lead to its mythical symbolism as an all-seeing witness to hidden acts. For this reason, the peacock feather is seen as bad luck in some parts of the world, where it never may cross the home's threshold.
There are no causes of bad luck because good and bad luck do not exist. But allegadly, stepping on a crack, walking under a ladder, and knocking over a salt shaker are some of the most popular 'causes' of bad luck.
The forms of signs are endless. Ask yourself if you felt positive or negative upon recognition.

The myth that cats bring bad luck is only a myth--millions of catowners worldwide would say cats are wonderful pets!
It has been considered bad luck to break a mirror ever since the Ancient Romans lived. They were the first to create mirror of glass, and they - along with the Chinese, Greek, Indian and African cultures - believed that a mirror was able to take away a part of the person gazing's soul. Furthermore, they believed that if the mirror was broken, it meant that his or her soul would be trapped in the world the mirror represented. Basically, a broken mirror created a broken soul which lead to broken health of the user. What's more, the Romans believed that every person's physical body was renewed every seven years, so that's why it would take seven years of bad luck to compensate for the broken mirror.
I beleive that wolves are good luck most people say bad because their ignorant, or scared.
No, they are just socks, it is like saying that it is bad luck to wear a sweater to bed, while you probably would not, it is silly. All superstitions are silly in general. Despite this, some are good for real life. For example: To break a mirror, they are expensive and very pretty, so it would be a shame to break one. Further more it can make deadly shards of glass. To walk under a ladder, if it falls then you get hurt. to open an umbrella indoors, that can knock stuff over. So some can have good ideas attached to them, but others like "if a black cat crosses your path" or "step on a crack, break you mothers back" are just plain silly. :)
It depends if the banana has gone bad but usually it isn't for it's packed with vitamins and potassium.
To know it's expiration date, check the bottle. All products have manufacturing and expiration dates indicated either in the bottom of the container or on it's cap or lid.
Firstly, it isn't; there's really no such thing as "bad luck" in the sense of "if you do this, you'll have bad luck." Secondly, you should ask whoever told you this where on Earth they got the idea. Thirdly, I hope by all that's holy you mean "pasty" in the sense of what most USians would call a "pot/meat pie", and not what "pasty" usually means in the US (if you don't know, here's a hint: it's called that because it gets "pasted" ... somewhere). In that case, bringing (or, worse, wearing) a pasty on some boats could prove to be very bad luck indeed.
According to the Christian Bible, 666 is associated with Satan so for most people, it is bad luck.

Eating more than one in a day will make you gain weight because it is a "sweet fruit" and has fat.
When something bad happens we say "What bad luck!" We do not say "What a bad luck!" because that is not correct in normal English usage.
