Dutch Customs of week 48

Duimen - (litt.: thumbing) 'fingers crossed', hoping for a good outcome of events

When we are uncertain about an outcome, for instance when waiting for our corona test results or anticipating the grades of our final exams, we duimen to keep our hopes up.

From now on, close your hands and rotate your thumbs around each other and things will turn out for the best!
