Have you ever heard of the Evil Eye, as it is known among the Jews?
From Wikipedia:
"Many observant Jews avoid talking about valuable items they own, good luck that has come to them and, in particular, their children. If any of these are mentioned, the speaker and/or listener will say b’li ayin hara (Hebrew), meaning “without an evil eye”, or kein eina hara (Yiddish; often shortened to kennahara), “no evil eye”. Another way to ward off the evil eye is to spit three times (or pretend to). Romans call this custom “despuere malum,” to spit at evil. "

Let’s not count our chickens before they have hatched. A week is a long time in politics and we’ve got fifty of them to get through before next year.
