9 When you wish upon a star 向着星星许愿
The superstition involving wishing on the first star you see in the evening is somewhat uncertain, however Europeans believed that the gods would occasionally peer down, and when they moved the sky, a star would escape and fall down. The Greeks also believed that the stars where falling human souls, and it was lucky to make a wish on them.
这一迷信是夜晚向你看见的第一颗星星许愿存在一定的不确定,然而欧洲人相信上帝可能会无意向下窥视,当他们飞升天上时,一个星星将会逃跑并降落下来。希腊人相信代表降落灵魂的星星,向他们祈愿会带来幸运。
8 Opening an umbrella indoors 室内打伞
According to superstition, if you open an umbrella indoors you are literally asking for bad luck to “rain on you”. One explanation comes from the days when umbrellas were used as protection from the sun; opening one inside was an insult to the sun god who would then curse you with bad luck. Another theory states that an umbrella protects you against the storms of life, so opening one inside your house insults the guardian spirits of your home (whom also protects you from the storms of life), causing them to leave you unprotected.
根据这个迷信,如果在室内打伞 ,正如字面上意思,你正在要求“在你身上下雨”的厄运。一个解释来自于白天时,伞用于防晒保护;在室内撑伞是一种对太阳神的侮辱,他可以用厄运诅咒你。另一理论陈述,伞可以保护你对抗生命中的暴雨,因此室内打伞诅咒你屋子的守护神 (谁也可以保护你远离生命中的暴雨),引起他们对你置之不理
7 New broom, new house, bad luck 新扫帚,新房,不幸

There are many superstitions associated with brooms (heck, that could be a list all in itself) but there is one very curious and particular superstition that we want to caution you on. As the lore goes, you cannot sweep dirt out of a new house (or apartment) with a new broom unless you sweep something in first. If you don't sweep something in first, then you will be sweeping out your good luck. Do not sweep out your good luck!

有许多迷信和扫帚有关( 饲草架,它可以列出所有)但是有一非常稀奇特殊的迷信我们想要提醒你。因为这一传说,你不能用新扫帚打扫新房子(或者新公寓)的尘土,除非你先打扫出其他的东西。如果你不先打扫出其他东西,那么你将会把你的好运扫走。不要扫走你的幸运!
