Answers

Superstitions play a major role in Huckleberry Finn. Both Huck and Jim are highly superstitous and so many of their decisions and choices are based on those superstitions. Both believe in good luck and bad luck, as well as omens. Therefore, superstitions serve as catalysts for action with these characters.
