Smoker Culture: Fear the White Lighter

quote [ THERE ARE ALL SORTS OF luck-related legends surrounding smoking. Some people turn one cigarette upside down in each new pack they buy, making it “lucky.” Others believe that lighting three or more cigarettes on the same match will bring on bad luck. ]

I didn't know how to categorize this one. It's sociology because it's smoker culture and urban legend; it falls short of religion & spirituality.

The story I've heard for lighting three cigarettes with the same match is that it came from soldiers on patrol and that was enough time for a sniper to draw a bead on the light. Probably bollocks but at least someone made up a good reason for it.
