Though shalt not commit fallacies

Logic Level 3

Christopher likes Red and dislikes Yellow.

Each day, on his way to school, he counts the number of red and yellow cars and makes the following conclusions

  • 3 red cars in a row make it a Quite Good Day, 4 red cars make it a Good Day, and 5 red cars in a row make it a Super Good Day
  • 4 yellow cars in a row make it a Black Day

When Mr. Jeavons, the psychologist at school asks him why, he says

I like red cars. When I see a row of red cars, they are a streak of good things. Hence, I am lucky on this day and more good things will happen to me.

What fallacy is Christopher committing?
