There are so many superstitions about black cats in the entire world and crossing of the path is one of the biggest ones. People say if a black cat crosses your path then it is a bad luck and you should not cross the road at that time. If you seriously want to do, then you should wait for others to cross the road or you should throw some bricks, wood or stones on the path to break the bad omen, you should wait for few minutes and then you should cross the road.
Many of you may be wondering if it is really a bad luck if a black cat walks in front of you. If you take my opinion, it was a superstition that is completely based on logic. In ancient time, people used to walk on the road in basic shoes. Also, roads used to be a trail between bushes and many wild animals used to live in the towns or villages as well because of greenery around the human habited areas.
A cat may have so many natural enemies and snakes were top on this list. This may surprise you, but snakes are the oldest natural animal of cats. Many time cats fight with the snake and if cats are not winning, then they start running. Snakes run after the cats and that is how this myth came into existence. In ancient time, if a cat is running in a city, then chances were high that a snake is coming after it. Now if you will walk on the same path and snake crosses the path at the same time, then you may accidently put your foot on the snake.
I don’t have to explain this simple fact to you, that putting your foot on an angry snake will give you nothing but a venomous bite. Needless to say, that will be a bad luck for you or for the person that will cross the path. Wise people in ancient time knew that people won’t understand the logic, so they attached it with bad luck. They said it will be a bad luck if a black cat runs in front of you and should change your path or you should try the other alternatives.
When you change your path then you automatically stay away from the snake or other enemies of the cat. And if you throw stones, you pray and then you cross the path, then you give time to yourself. In this duration, if a snake or other animal does not cross the path, then that would be safe for you. So, now if someone say is it a bad luck if a black cat crosses the road in front of you, then you know the answer.
And if you are driving a car and you see a black cat crossed your path, then you should not worry about it much. You should simply drive your car without having any kind of bad feelings in your mind and you will safely reach your destination.
