In this witty and informative book, Max Cryer explains the origins of many of the things we commonly say and observe, and why they are part of our lives: kissing under the mistletoe, number thirteen, not walking under ladders, saying 'bless you' after sneezing. So many aspects of our lives are coloured by superstition — now you can discover why.
