Superstitions: Today was and is for a few more minutes Friday the 13th, 2017

www.endrebarath.com

First question is: are you superstitious? There are many people who believe that Friday the 13th is bad luck. I am of the school that 13 is a lucky number so Friday the 13th is an even luckier day.

What do I consider saying often?

  1.           Knock on wood and I am not looking for actual wood, just humorously tap on my head.
  2.           Crossing my paws/fingers for a successful result
  3.          Certain personally important numbers 19,16,13,10

I have been negotiating with a few people and when I reached out two of them told me they do not want to talk business today because that would not be in their favor. I did not try to convince them clearly, they have their own belief systems. I will reach out to them tomorrow and see where we are at in the negotiations. I respect their feelings, no sense making things more stressful for them.

What I do and don’t do?

  1.          I do not put my baseball cap on the table
  2.          I do not wear a baseball cap in the house
  3.          I do not open an umbrella inside the house
  4.          I ask Diane to wish me a Successful Day when she leaves the house
  5.          I keep my Red Sox hat with me in the car when I go on appointments
  6.          I wear my lucky sox and suit when I go on an appointment

My grandfather had other traditions and belief systems, but many have eroded over the years, other traditions remained. For example, New Year’s Eve/day  we have lentil soup for prosperity’s sake.

So, what are your thoughts about Friday the 13th? Like I said in the beginning to me Friday the 13th is a lucky day!

 Overall I believe that Luck is the Residue of Effort and hard Work, so what are your thoughts?

It never hurts to add a dash of good luck on days that....well be less than lucky. Ask any first responder, ER attendant about full moons...

Hi Endre... I also posted about Friday the 13th... since I consider 13 a lucky number, I always love any day with a 13 in it and have no superstitions about what I will or won't do on that day. Since I own no baseball caps or sports gear... I'm not worried.

Hi Endre -- I'm aware of the superstitions surrounding 13 but I survived yesterday pretty much unscathed.  Now it's onto a new day.

I happen to think Friday the 13th is a lucky day. I wrote about this a few years ago. Friday 13th Are you afraid.

Last  night also Friday 13th I had a delightful evening at the opening of Threepenny Opera.

Endre I am not superstitious about most things, but there is something about the number 13 that I try to avoid.

I was at the hospital for a stress test and while filling out the paperwork, I noticed it was the 13th. Didn't bother me.

Endre - I don't really follow superstitions but I must admit that I am somewhat relieved that Friday the 13th is past.
