Australia - Mirror

In Australia and many parts of the world, there is a belief that if you break a mirror, it is considered bad luck, and you will have to endure a long 7 years of bad luck.

This superstition was originated long time ago during Victorian times in England, when mirrors were very expensive back then and only the richest people could afford them. Normally, those rich people will employ servant or housemaid in their house, when they breaks the mirror, it will take about 7 years for the servant to pay back the cost of the broken mirror by deducting their wages. What a bad luck....
