At some point in our lives, we believed in superstition. (Yes, you got that right, Santa Claus.)

Some absurd, some hopeful, some significant. Superstition is the belief in the supernatural -that one-event leads to the cause of another. Maybe true, maybe placebo. But what if it’s a superstition saying that if you throw a coin in a fountain, you’ll most certainly get the chance to go back at that place?

And so it has been told that a coin thrown into the Trevi Fountain in Rome, is said to ensure the comeback to the city, two coins thrown ensure romance with a Roman, either male or female, and three coins thrown ensure the marriage with him or her. And this tradition has surpassed generations, dating back to the 19th century. And up until today, you’ll see a ton of people, all throwing coins in this mystic-looking fountain that’s even more beautiful at night.

Good thing though is that the coins are collected daily to finance a special supermarket that serves the poor in Rome with the help from the Italian Red Cross. Whether you get to come back or marry a Roman, the more important thing is that you get to help people whether you believe it or not.
