Yesterday was Veteran’s Day! 11/11…I hope you took a moment to remember and thank all servicemen and women to have served and do serve our country.
On the other hand there was a movement that said when it became 11:11 on 11/11 we should make a wish. Are you casually superstitious? Do you wonder if some “spiritual energy that surrounds all things” can somehow cause the stars to align in our favor?
A poll found it’s something one in seven Americans do. And it’s even higher for younger people. Around one in four adults under 35 said they made a wish at 11:11.
Women are slightly more likely to do it than men. And people who do it are more likely to believe in other supernatural stuff: Half believe in karma and think “spiritual energy” is real . . . 36% believe in fate . . . and 21% believe in magic.
