Cross Our Fingers
Jump to navigation Jump to search
An old superstition says that if you cross your fingers (usually two fingers of the same hand) it will bring good luck.
Example: “I don’t know what I’m going to get for my birthday, but I’m crossing my fingers that it will be a bicycle.”
In German, cross our fingers = I’ll squeeze my thumbs for you (Ich werde dir die Daumen drücken).
