  • Hey, guys again, Because I'm back in Canada.

  • That's making you.

  • But today I think I've got a fun video for you guys.

  • It should be.

  • I was reading an article last night about Japanese superstitions, and I read the 1st 1 and it was just so ridiculous.

  • I thought, Well, this would make a really good video.

  • So we're going Thio, go through those together with you guys.

  • And I would like all my Japanese subscribers or some of you tell me, are these things you guys like truly believe and that you heard a lot growing up?

  • Um, some of them just seems so out there to me and probably develop.

  • Have heard the man I would really like to know.

  • All right, Number one.

  • If you file your nails at night, you will not be able to see your parents before they die.

  • That's awful.

  • Or alternatively, you will die early.

  • But like what?

  • What does this have to do with filing your nails at night?

  • Can someone explain that?

  • Please, Please.

  • I want to know the story behind this.

  • I mean, it's one time this one guy filed his nails at night and then he got hit by a car the next year or something.

  • All right, number two.

  • If you whistle in the night, you will be visited by a snake or a ghost.

  • I like snakes and ghosts.

  • So I am flying at night.

  • Why does whistling attract ghosts?

  • It's not like a thing in Japan when you whistle to ghost like that.

  • That's why no one in Japan whistles.

  • They don't Actually, the Donald I didn't even know.

  • I just guess number three If you hiccup 100 times consecutively, you will die.

  • Sounds legit.

  • Except there's this one girl who, like, can't stop hiccuping and oh, yeah, I've seen like a documentary Give me too So that would really suck false.

  • But number four don't lay down right after you eat or you will be turned into a cow E think it's more like you will look like a cow the next day.

  • If you eat, go to bed.

  • I guess that makes sense.

  • It's never happened to me, so I do it all the time.

  • But I'm still not a cow.

  • Not academy one day, probably both of us.

  • Number five.

  • When you see a spider in the morning, it's good luck.

  • But when you see one at nighttime, it's bad luck.

  • It's not a good look for the spider if I see him in the morning, you know, But you can't kill it.

  • When I was staying at my my first home stay ever in Japan, I remember seeing a spider in the morning.

  • I get out of my room and they're like, No, no, no, you can't.

  • Because they're good luck.

  • Just leave it there.

  • Number six.

  • If you hear thunder, hide your belly button.

  • Otherwise, the god of thunder will eat it.

  • Okay, So how do you eat a belly button?

  • All right.

  • Good Number seven.

  • These air just so weird.

  • If you leave a ceiling or floor fan on all night, guess you'll die.

  • Yeah, you all of Japan is so hot.

  • I bet most of you leave your fans on all night.

  • I would die if I didn't leave it on.

  • Exactly.

  • That is so weird.

  • These air weird.

  • Okay, but now we're gonna tell you guys about common Canadian superstitions.

  • Probably same as America.

  • But we have really similar ones.

  • Don't Don't walk under a ladder ladder.

  • You mentioned something about a black cat?

  • Yeah, But it has to be, like love to write really rightto Latin over.

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah.

  • Um, so these are all like in Canada if these things have and it's bad luck.

  • I love how in Japan, like, if these bad things happen, you're gonna die.

  • But we're a little nicer about it.

  • It's just you don't need to worry too much.

  • Just tripping breaking.

  • And then there's don't open an umbrella indoors.

  • Yes, I always think about that one when I'm carrying an umbrella.

  • Like I always make sure that I'm out the door is before I open it.

  • Yeah, And then for me, when I come into work, really raining too am like, open it really slow And we will wait and see.

  • That's what we take really seriously.

  • But two people that have not heard that before.

  • That's probably really strange breaking glass.

  • Seven years.

  • Bad luck.

  • Not last.

  • A mirror mirror.

  • Yeah.

  • Don't break a mirror.

  • Seven years about no matter how we have lots for good luck.

  • Like putting salt behind your back.

  • Yeah.

  • Good luck.

  • Like and maybe that's just me.

  • Oh, tell you next.

  • I heard that before, though.

  • So that might be It's not as common, I think because good luck ones are more like finding a penny.

  • Yeah, or finding like a four leaf clover, which never.

  • And carrying a rabbit's foot, which is really gross.

  • Yeah, that's about all I can think of if you guys, I really want you guys to share superstitions that you have in your country that you think we probably aren't aware of because I would really like to hear them.

  • I finally is really interesting.

  • And Japanese viewers please tell me if the ones that we talked about in the beginning our actual things like, Do you guys really believe these?

  • I would love to know.

  • Uh, yeah.

  • Thanks.

  • I want you guys guy.

  • So my grandma's coming over, and she doesn't know that I'm in Canada.

  • So we're going Thio, keep this camera set up here and hopefully you'll be able to see her reaction when I opened the door.

Hey, guys again, Because I'm back in Canada.
