Fun Phrase Friday: “Keep Your Fingers Crossed”

Happy Friday!
This weeks fun phrase is “Keep your fingers crossed.”

Meaning: To hope that something spoken, thought of or put in train will succeed, or nothing will happen to make it fail; wish me luck.

History: Making the sign of the cross to ward off danger or evil is an old superstition that probably was the origin of this saying, and so one would suppose the saying is quite ancient. It seems, however, to have become popular in England around 1920 and in the United States around 1930.
