Myth No .1: A broken mirror equals bad luck

Break a mirror and you’ll have seven years’ bad luck. Well, that’s what they say anyway. This myth is derived from an idea that our ancestors had: The image in a mirror was your actual soul, and if a mirror was shattered, it meant your soul had gone astray. The only way to set it straight? Bury the pieces of broken glass. Hey, believe what you will, but we see a broken mirror as a great excuse to hit up IKEA. Score!
