In this book full of surprises and revelations, Max Cryer explains the origins of many of the things we commonly say and observe

Some people say “touch wood” when they speak of something they hope will happen. Others won’t allow peacock feathers into the house. And almost anyone who finds a four leafed clover will treasure it and keep it. Why?

In this book full of surprises and revelations, Max Cryer explains the origins of many of the things we commonly say and observe and why we continue to include them in our lives: kissing under the mistletoe, the unlucky number thirteen, the significance of the bridal bouquet, saying “bless you” after sneezing, the hanging of the horseshoe, “the Scottish play”, the danger of opals, the Leap Year proposal… so many aspects of our lives are coloured by superstition. Now you will discover the reasons for them in a book that is both witty and informative.

Soft cover, 20 x 13cm / 7¾ x 5 inches, 176 pages.
