Lucky or Unlucky?

L fell on the perfect day - Friday the 13th

Personally, I don't have a huge hang-up on superstitions. Do I go out of my way to walk under a ladder? And I will take notice of a black cat crossing my path.

So I did a little research to find what superstitions are out there. Here are just a few:

1) If 13 people sit and dine together, one of them will die.
2) Never open an umbrella indoors as it will bring you bad luck.
3) If you break a mirror, you'll have bad luck for seven years
4) Make a wish on that turkey's wishbone. Supposedly it will come true.
5) 'Step on a crack, break your mother's back'
6) Bad things happen in threes.
7) The famous rabbit's foot
8) If you change your bed on a Friday, you will have bad dreams.

Feel free to add any superstitions below in the comments area. Happy Friday the 13th!

  1. I'll make sure we don't wash the sheets today then.

  2. Man oh man! Now I know what my problem is...I changed the sheets this morning! :)

  3. I have broken 2 hand mirrors this year so far and I was worried at first but if I expect bad to happen, it will so I choose to forget the mirrors. I change the sheets on Saturdays. I do like to wish on a heads up penny and throw it over my shoulder though.

  4. I'd never heard of numbers 1 and 8. Guess I won't be eating with 12 other people today--and I definitely won't be changing the sheets! ;)

  5. I never heard of #8- I don't pay any attention to any of them. I'm trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge Blogs this month from

  6. If I'm still here I can assure you it is because I've had good luck.

  7. Wait. I thought good things happened in threes? Oh, that sucks!
