Chopstick Superstitions & Etiquette:  

Chopsticks were invented thousands of years ago, during Shang times

The China Daily Newspaper reported some chopstick superstitions: "If you find an uneven pair at your table setting, it means you are going to miss a boat, plane or train. Dropping chopsticks will inevitably bring bad luck."

The China Daily Newspaper also shared some chopstick etiquette: "Crossed chopsticks are permissible in a dim sum restaurant. The waiter will cross them to show that your bill has been settled, or you can do the same to show the waiter that you have finished and are ready to pay the bill."
