EtymologyEdit

A jinx, in popular superstition and folklore, is a type of curse placed on a person that makes them prey to many minor misfortunes and other forms of bad luck; a person afflicted with a similar curse, who, while not directly subject to a series of misfortunes, seems to attract them to anyone in his vicinity; or an object or person that brings bad luck.
