Broken Mirror

It is said that when you break a mirror, your cosmic reparation is to endure seven years of bad luck, unless you can find a way to counteract the negative effects. The source of the " break a mirror and face seven years bad luck" superstition can be traced back to the Romans. The Romans, Greek, Chinese, African and Indian civilizations thought that a mirror had power to take part of a person's soul. If the user of a mirror were to break it, the person's soul would be trapped inside the mirror. A broken mirror created a broken soul, which in turn lead to the broken health of the unfortunate user. The Romans also believed that a person's physical body renewed itself every seven years, so under that criteria it would take seven years before the user's soul would be fully restored. Up until then, life for a mirror breaker would be one long string of unfortunate events, since he or she no longer had a healthy soul to ward off spiritual evildoers.


El Chupacabra

The Chupacabra, which means goatsucker in Spanish, is a legendary cryptid that is believed to inhabit parts of the America's and first sighted in Puerto Rico. The first attacks happened in Puerto Rico when eight sheep were found dead with three puncture wounds in their chest and drained of all of their blood. A common description of the Chupacabra is it is reptile like animal with a leathery grayish skin with sharp quills along its spine. It stands around 3 to 4 feet and stands and hops like a kangaroo. Its been reported to have large fangs, eyes, and a forked tongue. Others have reported that the Chupacabra looks like a mutated coyote. Many people report finding this creature but after examinations they always turn out to be dogs and coyotes with severe cases of mange.
