break a leg
what is the meaning of "break a leg?"
Re: break a leg
There is an old superstition in the entertainment business that if you wish a performer "good luck," it will actually bring him bad luck. So instead, it is traditional to tell a performer to "break a leg" before he goes onstage. It is the show business way of saying "good luck."
