Faith and Superstition Faith and superstition are separated by the beliefs basis.

A superstition is a belief or practice that isnt entirely based on facts or reality, like carrying a rabbits foot because you think it brings you good fortune, or believing that Friday the 13th is a day of bad luck.

Superstitions are irrational decisions we make for some weird reason. The Latin roots of the word translate as standing over. Examples of superstitions include picking up pennies as signs of good luck, avoiding breaking mirrors, otherwise being punished for seven years of bad luck, or avoiding walking under ladders. Are you going to have bad luck if you open an umbrella inside the house?

But when you have faith, you trust or believe in something very strongly. Some people have faith in a higher being. This noun comes from the Old French word feid, meaning faith, belief, trust, confidence, pledge. It's often used when describing religion or the supernatural: people have faith in God, or actually refer to the religion they practice as their faith. Some choose to have the same amount of faith in a good friend or anything that will come through for them in a time of need.
