Silly superstition?

Superstition:
a belief or practice resulting from ignorance, fear of the unknown, trust in magic or chance, or a false conception of causation; an irrational abject attitude of mind toward the supernatural, nature, or God resulting from superstition; a notion maintained despite evidence to the contrary

Yesterday morning, Ruby was looking for something in our catch-all closet and pulled out my umbrella.  I have told my kids on many occasions to NOT open the umbrella in the house because it could lead to bad luck.  They've heard about bad luck before thanks to Little Foot and his gang in The Land Before Time VI "The Secret Of Saurus Rock" but they obviously don't really get how serious it is.
Yesterday afternoon, mere hours after the umbrella/bad luck discussion, Ruby dropped a hand mirror down our stairs.  I wish I wasn't superstitious at all, but apparently I am.  Really, breaking a mirror will make even make a skeptic shudder... at least for a moment, right? I think we all believe in good luck, and love to blame everything else on bad luck.  
The first "remedy" I found to reverse the bad luck caused by the broken mirror was to leave the pieces for  7 hours before picking them up [not going to happen in a house with 2 little ones and a cat] and bury it under the moonlight [also not happening right now - March is snowy and the ground is frozen].  Then I remembered that my mom once broke a mirror and she put all the pieces in a bag and through it over the bridge under running water! AHA!  Yep, I Googled that too and came up with this:
"Take the object you believe is causing your bad luck and dispose of it by either burning it or throwing it under running water."

Anyone else believe in this stuff?  What would you do?
