Saturday Superstition Trio

Saturday Superstition Trio

It is believed to be bad luck to have three lit candles on stage. I’m guessing this most likely came from a time when theater fires were common and often tragic. Even today,  fire regulations would probably prohibit open flames on stage.

But there are other reasons for this supersition. According to
 “It is believed that the person who stands closest to the shortest candle will be the first to die.”

“While it is adhering to the "rule of three" having lit three candles on stage is considered bad luck. It is said that the person nearest to the shortest candle will be the next to marry or the next to die.”

Whatever the source or reason, it’s best to banish all fire from the stage.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Superstition #144:
“Never light three candles on stage.”
