Form 8 Unit 1. Superstitions

Изучая тему THE UK в 8 классе, знакомя учащихся с культурой и традициями страны, интересно и полезно обратить внимание на суеверия британцев — superstitions. Чтобы задать проблему, послушайте в классе песню Life в исполнении Des’ree и предложите найти в ней упоминания суеверий (walking underneath a ladder brings bad luck, saying three times ‘white rabbits’ or carrying a rabbit’s foot (в песне tail) brings good luck)

«Life»

Mmm, yeah yeah yeah
Oh yeah, yeah yeah
Oh life, oh life

I’m afraid of the dark
Especially when I’m in a park
And there’s no one else around
Ooh, I get the shivers

I don’t want to see a ghost
It’s a sight that I fear most
I’d rather have a piece of toast
And watch the evening news

Life, oh life, oh life, oh life
Doo, doo doo doo
Life, oh life, oh life, oh life
Doo, doo doo doo

I’m a superstitious girl
I’m the worst in the world
Never walk under ladders
I keep a rabbit’s tail

I’ll take you up on a dare
Anytime, anywhere
Name the place, I’ll be there
Bungee jumping, I don’t care

Life, oh life, oh life, oh life
Doo, doo doo doo
Life, oh life, oh life, oh life
Doo, doo doo
Life, doo, doo doo
Doo, doo doo

So after all is said and done
I know I’m not the only one
Life indeed can be fun
If you really want to

Sometimes living out your dreams
Ain’t as easy as it seems
You wanna fly around the world
In a beautiful balloon

Life, oh life, oh life, oh life
Doo, doo doo doo
Life, oh life, oh life, oh life
Doo, doo doo doo

Life, oh life, oh life, oh life
Doo, doo doo doo
Life, oh life, oh life, oh life
Doo, doo doo doo

Doo, doo doo doo
Doo, doo doo doo
Doo, doo doo doo
Doo, doo doo doo
Doo, doo doo doo
Oh life, oh life

Oh life, oh life, oh life, oh life
Oh life, oh life, oh life, oh life

A bit of information concerning black cats.

In some places black cats are believed to be symbols of good luck:

Scotland; a black cat appearing on your doorstep is a sign of prosperity
England; in the Midlands, a black cat as a wedding present is thought to bring good luck to the bride
France: In the south of France, black cats are referred to as ‘matagots’ or ‘magician cats’ and according to local superstition, feeding and treating them well will bring good luck to the owner.
Northern Europe; it is believed that taking in and caring for a black cat can ensure fair weather and safe passage during voyages on the sea
Asia: owning a black cat is considered lucky
Italy: if you hear a black cat sneeze, you are in for a streak of good luck
Japan: black cats are a symbol of good luck – if they see a black cat crossing their path, they say ‘Konichiwa’ and take control of their own luck
