    您好 

    下床下錯邊 錯誤的那邊指的是左邊 這典故要追溯回羅馬時代的一個迷信 人們不斷傳說 起床起錯邊 一整天心情都不好 經過了三個多世紀 現在的人也無法得知古時那些人說的真正意思 但有一些相同的老傳說 像起床左腳先著地 穿鞋先穿左腳進屋先踏進左腳 等等 在很多西方迷信 都表示不祥或不吉利尤其那些羅馬人 特別是奧古斯圖凱薩大帝非常小心這些禁忌 做什麼事總是從右邊開始 但現今證明 他們也沒有比其他人更順心如意阿˙ (這是國外網站的解說 我大略的幫版主翻成中文)

    GET UP ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE BED - "The wrong side of the bed is the left side, according to a superstition that goes back to the time of the Romans. People have been saying other people 'got up on the wrong side of the bed,' 'awoke surly or grouchy,' for well over three centuries now, usually not knowing the real meaning of what they are saying, but the equally old expression 'got up left foot forward' tells the story. The supposedly sinister nature of the left is reflected in many English superstitions and expressions, such as the belief that it is unlucky to put your left shoe first, or to walk into a house left foot first. The Romans, especially Augustus Caesar, were very careful that they got up on the right side of the bed, but there is no evidence that they were less grouchy than anyone else." From "Encyclopedia of Word and Phrase Origins" by Robert Hendrickson (Facts on File, New York, 1997).
