This was such a FUN post written several years ago about Friday the 13th, I wanted to bring it back for all your reading pleasure. It still applies today!


F-f-f-friday the 13th! - Redux


Are you among the superstitious, especially when Friday the 13th appears? I have to say that I am about certain things...other things, not so much. Here are some that I was very familiar with growing up, thanks to a very superstitious mom!


  • Finding a penny heads up will bring good luck
  • Putting it in your left shoe continues to bring good luck
  • Knocking on wood will prevent something bad from happening
  • Wishing upon the first star you see in the sky at night, it will come true
  • A rabbit's foot brings good luck - kind of gross when you think about it!
  • Walking under a ladder will cause an accident 
  • Bird poop means riches - it actually means you need to wash the car!
  • A black cat walking across your path is bad luck
  • Breaking a mirror brings seven years bad luck
  • Crossing two fingers is used for good luck - crossing the legs means you better make a run for the bathroom!
  • Opening an umbrella indoors is bad luck
  • Finding a horseshoe means good luck - hang with ends pointing up!
  • Step on a crack, break your mother's back - get on the grass!
  • Garlic cloves around the neck prevent vampire bites - this was the only way I survived childhood!
  • Blowing out all the candles on your birthday cake the first time, the wish will come come true 
  • Whoever gets the biggest part of a wishbone when two people break it, their wish is granted
  • An itchy palm means money is on the way - my mom's favorite!
  • An itchy nose means you are going to kiss a fool - You need only to fool-proof your surroundings!
  • An itchy ear means someone is talking about you
  • Itchy feet mean you will be traveling soon - or you have athlete's foot!
  • A cat has nine lives - indeed they do! RIP Tux.
  • Toads cause warts if they pee on you - urine for it!
  • Washing a car will bring rain - that one definitely rings true!

Hello Wanda,  I guess I am funny and believe in so many of these.  Friday the 13th is superstitions that people believe in.
