Are you superstitious? Do not worry - many people are. Even coffee lovers have their share of superstitious beliefs. Here are some of the most common superstitions associated with coffee.
In Greece, you will find some strange beliefs practiced by coffee drinkers. For example, if you spill coffee on a coffee plaque or a picture with coffee, people say you will have money. In the current context, this certainly sounds like an easy and attractive way to become unexpectedly rich!
If your cup of coffee has a big bubble, this is disappointing to have. Some, however, say it is a sign that your friend will arrive soon.
According to superstition, if you see bubbles in your coffee, you should drink it immediately. They should not disappear. If you drink it before they disappear, you will receive money from an unexpected source. Can not hurt to try, right?
If you have time and do not want to drink coffee once, why not view the motion of the bubbles in a cup of coffee? As these bubbles move, they tell people many things.
One superstition says that if the bubbles move towards the person drinking coffee, they are destined to become rich. But if the bubbles are in retreat, hard times will follow for he who has the drink.
Some people believe that you must use the same coffee cup when drinking coffee or something bad will happen to you. Another superstition says that if you leave bread and coffee in the house, you have the perfect weapon against ghosts!
A cup of coffee can predict the weather. If bubbles form in the middle of the cup, then the weather will be sunny and nice. If bubbles form around the outside of the cup, the weather will be changing to rain or snow.
The truth of this is that the high atmospheric pressure forces the bubbles to the surface of the coffee to go to the center, thus signalling weather and sun.
At low pressure, the bubbles burst to the outside of the cup and also predict the possibility of changing weather with rain and snow.
Well, it would seem that some superstitions have a bit of physics involved in them!
