When does superstition end and religious fervor begin?

The time superstitions end and religious fervor begins starts when it is preached or taught in public. Some superstitions are spread orally but others are supported with facts.For example, the superstitions about vampires are obviously not true, therefore, they are simply superstitions. But, the superstition about Friday the 13th can be related to religion for that is where it originated (at least, that’s what most people say). They are supported by facts – religious facts, but facts nonetheless – and can be called a ‘religious fervor’.
