Description: Never rock an empty rocking chair
This superstition holds that an rocking an empty chair is an invitation for evil spirits to sit in it. A more scary version asserts that rocking an empty chair will cause a death in the family. Like broomsticks, cats, and knitting, this superstition may have something to do with old ladies - and therefore, the thinking went, witches.
