  3. hmmm... I thought the whole touch wood thing was only if you said something and you didn't want to jinx yourself. You know like, "Wow, I'm sure to win the contest now that everyone else has dropped out" (insert wood touching).

    Happy WW.

  7. In the States we use the saying, "Knock on Wood," to add a little more hope to something we've said hopefully.
    Wikipedia equates our Knock on Wood to the Touch Wood uterance.

    Happy WW, Jenn!

    I have a cute dog backing a car out of a parking place on mine this week.

  11. First time to hear about this superstition! I've heard of knocking on wood, but just that. This is interesting. Can't hurt to give it a whirl! Happy WW!

  12. I think I would rather touch wood than knock on it anyway for good luck, seems more respectful that way. Nice picture! Happy WW Jenn!

  13. Is this only done on a particular wood/tree esp. in Prague? Wish I had a tree for luck like that. Cool shot. I love the juxtaposed textures.
    Happy WW.
    (P.S. Couldn't post my WW this week.)

  14. It's quite common here for people to tap their head and say touch wood. Thinking about I do it often myself! I understand that the superstition goes back to pagan times when they considered trees to have spirits

  15. I learned something new. Cool! I have heard knock on wood, but never touch wood. Now I know.

  16. Hmmm...my desk at work is solid wood and I touch it all day, every day. Where's my luck? Oh, wait ... family, health, job, you and other friends ... never mind, I think I found it.
