Is it bad luck to cut your toe nails on a sunday?

We say no.

As explained in the rhyme below, cutting your nails on a Sunday is bound to bring bad luck. Choosing to cut your nails on a particular day means the following:

Cut your nails on a Monday, cut them for news;

Cut them on Tuesday for a new pair of shoes;

Cut them on Wednesday, cut them for health;

Cut them on Thursday, cut them for wealth;

Cut them on Friday, cut them for woe;

Cut them on Saturday, a journey you’ll go;

Cut them on Sunday, you cut them for evil,

For all the next week you’ll be ruled by the Devil.

Superstition is a belief or an action that is inconsistent with science, says Stuart Vyse, a Connecticut College psychologist.

Vyse says only 40 percent of Americans believe in evolution and over half of Americans have some kind of superstition that they believe in.

"Count yourself lucky if you're NOT superstitious", he said. "In a world where we prize science, it may not be something to be proud of."
