My favorite superstition was one a Jewish friend of mine told me. Her mother was always coming up with these Jewish superstitions that nobody else ever heard of. She was at a funeral, at the graveside, and someone sneezed. Her mother yelled, "Quick! Pull up your ear!" Apparently, if someone sneezes at a funeral, it will lure in bad spirits, and to ward them off the sneezer has to pinch the top of his ear and pull up on it. Like I said, nobody else ever heard of this, but now, if you're ever at a funeral and someone sneezes, you're going to have this irresistable urge to yell - "Quick! Pull up your ear!"
