Usually Bad Luck To Cross A Black Cats Path
Halloween Tip #3: The Black Cat Superstition:
Don't always believe the old Halloween urban legends and wives tales that black cats are bad luck. As superstition goes, black cats are bad luck if you see a stray one. It's even worse luck if a black cat crosses your path. People to this day alter their own course to avoid a black cat. Perhaps the worrisome feelings stem fro the black cat being linked to the occult and witchcraft.
The Dark Zone advises: If you happen upon the scene pictured above, dive right in.
