FRIDAY 13TH SUPERSTITIONS

In English-speaking countries, Friday the 13th is considered a day of bad luck.
It is generally considered bad luck to...

  • Start anything on a Friday: a new journey, job, marriage , business project, giving birth, moving house.
  • Cut fingernails  and hair  on a Friday.
                    
  • Have thirteen people at a table.
  • Walk underneath a ladder .
  • Break a mirror ( seven years bad luck). 
  • See one magpie .
  • Spill salt. If you do, you must throw it over your shoulder to counteract the bad luck. 
  • Open an umbrella  in doors. 
  • The number thirteen is unlucky. Friday the thirteenth is a very unlucky day. 
  • Put new shoes on the table. 
  • Pass someone on the stairs .


It is generally considered good luck to...
  • Meet a black cat. (In the UK, but not in Spain). 
  • Touch wood 
  • Find a clover plant with four leaves.
  • A horseshoe  over the door brings good luck. But the horse shoe needs to be the right way up. The luck runs out of the horse shoe if it is upside down. 
  • On the first day of the month it is lucky to say "white rabbits, white rabbits white rabbits" before saying your first word of the day. 
  • Catch falling leaves  in Autumn. Every leaf means a lucky month next year. 



Do you believe in good luck and bad luck? Are you superstitious? What are you superstitious about? Write a comment and tell me.
