New Delhi: Superstitions are very irrational beliefs that usually do not stand with any logic and are often passed from generation to generation. Superstitions are related to our day to day life, and we usually come across them.

 
Beliefs such as don't walk under the ladder is somewhat logical but hanging lemon and chilies to avoid bad omens, considering sneezing as inauspicious at d beginning of a new work, hoping to get a snake skin in order to get good wealth are some of the beliefs that people believe with all their hearts and also passed from generation to generation, though they do not have any proved logic.
 
Here we present you the list of top 10 most common superstitious beliefs:

10. Eclipse
 


A lot many superstitions can be seen and heard during the time of eclipse. Eclipse occurs when the Moon's shadow crosses the Earth's surface as in solar eclipse, or when the Moon moves into the Earth's shadow as in lunar eclipse. Though it is an astronomical event, but during these events, superstitions rule the mind of the people. People believe that it is not auspicious to pray, eat or clean your house at the time of eclipse. Even the temples are closed at the time of an eclipse.
