The Curse of the Evil Eye

The evil eye is a stare, glare, or gaze with malice behind it. The typical target of an evil eye curse is someone who is more fortunate than others or who seems to be overflowing in luck. Successful people are often the subject of jealousy and envy, today as much as in ancient times. Many cultures, including the Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Mesopotamian, and Celtic people, truly believed that an individual had the power to bring misfortune and suffering to another person simply by looking at them in a malevolent way.
