Category:Superstitious Beliefs & Practices
From WikiPilipinas: The Hip 'n Free Philippine Encyclopedia
Superstition is the belief or notion that an object, action, event or circumstance are affected by specific behaviors, without having any logical relation with its outcome. It is related to a set of beliefs, either religious or folkloric in origin, that are outside the norms or way of life of "today's society". It is maybe because these beliefs originate from the ancient times and are now regarded eccentric especially in urban areas. Superstitions are also parallel to the belief in the supernatural or things that are beyond the capacity of knowledge and reason.
People of rural, upland communities still believe in these superstitions and use it as a guide in their daily lives, of which many Filipinos are emphatic about.
