Avoid years with bad luck – and bad sex in Spain

When offering a toast, look every person in the group in the eye!

Superstitions in Spain are the same as in much of the western world, such as breaking mirror and not walking under a ladder. But some are unique to Spain, above all when it comes to drinking – and to avoid bad sex.

  • The rule in Spain is like this: Never toast with a glass of water. If you do, you’ll get seven years of bad sex!
  • However, rule number one is this: When offering a toast, look every person in the group in the eye!
  • Don´t ask why you are supposed to do this, it just seems polite and this rule is enforced in Spain suggest that some believe it is bad luck if you don´t meet eyes.

    Be concerned on a Tuesday

If you’re the kind of superstitious soul, remember; Tuesday the 13th, not Friday 13th, is considered unlucky in Spain. Don´t get married on a Tuesday 13th and never buy family or friends knives or scissors as a gift. Tradition says this means that the relationship will be broken. Breaking social conventions will bring you bad luck… or worse – bad sex on a Tuesday.
