- A black cat crossing in front of you. Depends where you are in the world. If you're in England this is a good luck omen, if you are in the States then it's bad luck. However, if you should happen to have three black cats that cross your path then this is good luck no matter where you are.
- Finding a Daddy Long Legs. This is good luck. While these spiders are the most poisonous in the world, they aren't able to penetrate our skin. If you kill a Daddy Long Legs spider then expect bad luck.
