Juan P-B Folklore: Touch Wood? (21) RE: Folklore: Touch Wood? 07 Oct 04

I'd always understood that it refers to the woodsmen touching the tree to placate the forest spirits living in there before he chopped the tree down.

I like some of the others though - especially 'touching cloth' - I had heard that referred to as 'ground-hogging'!!
