How often do you hear folks say ‘Knock on wood?’

Even in 2017, appeals to magic are as popular as ever.

Ever wonder why that is?

My 2¢: Is it because even the most rational among us feel that creating anything good usually takes a pinch of magic?

But hey, don’t take my word for it. How many times have you heard successful people reply with a humble “I was also very lucky” when explaining their success? And what’s luck if not a kind of magic?
