Why Do We Cross Our Fingers #1323

The first comes from a prechristian pagan belief in powerful symbolisms of the cross, which was the intersection of thought and a mark of concentration for good spirits. It served to anchor a wish until it came true. The practice of wishing upon a cross in early european cultures evolved to a tradition in which a person crossed their index finger over someone else's index finger to express hope that a wish would come true
