What Superstitions Are Connected to New Year's Eve?

Answer

One common NYE superstition is that if a black cat crosses your path when you're out walking, you will have bad luck (let's all hope this isn't true). Another superstition is that horseshoes as well as finding a penny bring good luck. Some things that are said to bring bad luck in the New Year are the number 13, breaking a mirror and opening your umbrella while in the house.
