Winter Mirror

Will this Eagle face seven years of bad luck if it breaks the mirror?

Winter Mirror thanks to Wayne Nowazek

It is said that when you break a mirror, your cosmic penance is to endure seven years of bad luck, unless you can find a way to counteract the negative effects. The origin of the 'break a mirror, face seven years of bad luck' superstition can be traced back to the Romans, who were the first to create glass mirrors. The Romans, along with the Greek, Chinese, African and Indian cultures, believed that a mirror had the power to confiscate part of the user's soul. If the user's reflected image became distorted in any way, this could mean a corruption of his or her soul.
