10 Mexican superstitions that I totally believe in & you should too

Mexican superstitionsLet's be clear here, I am not superstitious. Nope, not at all. I am actually a very rational person, but there are a few Mexican superstitions that I totally follow. It's not that I believe in them blindly, it's just that my Mexican mother told me about them so often that I don't see the point in taking any chances because my mami didn't raise no dummy!

I don't care whether you are Mexican or not, I really think you should take a gander at these superstitions because you don't want to be salada! No seriously, why would you take a chance. That's not being superstitious that's just being cautious. Better safe than sorry!
