a black cat crossing your path

From wikipedia on black cats crossing your path:

The folklore surrounding black cats varies from culture to culture. In  Great Britain  and in  Ireland, black cats are a symbol of good luck. The  Scottish  believe that a strange black cat’s arrival to the home signifies prosperity. In  Celtic mythology, a  fairy  known as the  Cat Sìth  takes the form of a black cat. Black cats are also considered good luck in Japan.[3]  Furthermore, it is believed that a lady who owns a black cat will have many suitors.[4]  However in Western history, black cats have often been looked upon as a symbol of evil omens, specifically being suspected of being the  familiars  of  witches, and so most of western and southern Europe considers the black cat as a symbol of bad luck, especially if one crosses paths with a person, which is believed to be an omen of misfortune and death. In Germany, some believe that black cats crossing a person’s path from right to left, is a bad omen. But from left to right, the cat is granting favorable times.[5]
