    What is one "itchy nose" superstition ?

    A:

    Superstitions about an itchy nose vary geographically, but one common myth claims an itchy nose means you are about to receive a visitor. Additionally, which side of the nose the itch occurs on dictates the gender of the uninvited guest. If the left side of your nose itches, the visitor is going to be a man, while itching on the right side means a woman caller is likely. This specific folklore is common in the southern region of the United States, but other itchy nose superstitions exist elsewhere.
