Trivia: How many years of bad luck does breaking a mirror bring?
Correct Answer: 7
So why is this answer correct? : Breaking a mirror doesn’t just bring bad luck—it brings seven years of it. The history of this superstition actually goes back to the ancient Romans. They believed that gods observed people’s souls through mirrors, and damaging one was so disrespectful that it brought bad luck from the gods. But they also believed the body completely refreshed itself every seven years—so the bad luck didn’t last forever, just until you became a refreshed person.
