breaking the mirror

as stated in the title, anyone broke mirror before and do you believe it will brings you 7 years of bad luck? i broke a mirror about 5-7 years ago,i am not too sure regarding the exact date, i long ago forgotten about this matter and i never thought of associating with it when bad things happened to me.

but the old always said " 宁可信其有,不可信其无"

so what is your opinion about this?


being very skeptical, here is the article


About the origin of the superstition that breaking a mirror will bring seven years of bad luck relation to ancient history.

BREAKING A MIRROR

This will bring you 7 years of bad luck or might cause the death of someone in the family. If a mirror is broken, remove it from the house and, if possible, bury it in the ground (to counteract the evil consequences).

Origin. Before the invention of mirrors, man gazed at his reflection, his "other self," in pools, ponds, and lakes. If the image was distorted, it was a mark of impending disaster. The "unbreakable" metal mirrors of the early Egyptians and Greeks were valued items because of their magical properties. After glass mirrors were introduced, it was the Romans who tagged the broken mirror a sign of bad luck. The length of the prescribed misfortune, 7 years, came from the Roman belief that man's body was physically rejuvenated every 7 years, and he became, in effect, a new man.

Re: breaking the mirror

But why 7 years? Not 8 or 9 or 10?
