The story

A Superstition I have is that whenever make a wish because it’s 11:11 or birthday wishes or any type of wish and sometimes you make one I never said out loud because It will never come true

 

 

The background

The informant explains that the Superstition is very meaningful to them because they always want believe in miracles like this and just in case I wish does come true they don’t want to say anything out loud

 

Context

This is very popular in Western culture the belief in Magic and miracles and spells like 11:11 and wishes just in general it is best to keep your mouth shut because sharing it will probably spoil ittehr eason for 11:11 being a so called magc number is because of its repetition in numbers which only happens twice a day.
