Friday the 13th - before the Luck of the Irish ☘

Services for Real Estate Pros with Christine Wade CA License# 01442002

It's finally Friday...the 13th that is!  This particular Friday the 13th happens to fall right before St. Patrick's known for bad luck, one for good...does that mean they balance each other out and it's a wash this year?  Who knows, but with all the depressing news right now, I thought we all needed a break!  Here's what the Irish have to say about Friday the 13th...


Irish superstitions to be aware of this Friday the 13th:  

  • Black cat crosses your path - we all know this is bad - but did you know that if you make a triangle with your thumbs and index (pointy) fingers and spit at the cat through that triangle that your crisis may be avoided?  Apparently this works with the walking under the ladder problem as well...
  • Roosters crowing at your threshold predicts visitors 
  • Magpies - 3 in road = badluck, 2 on right-hand side = good luck
  • If you kill a robin (redbreast only?) you are never to have good luck again.
  • If you FIND a horseshoe and nail it over your door you will have good luck - a gifted one does not produce the same effect.


I am ending on that one - I only shared a few of the ones having to do with animals, click on the link above to go to the article and read more...


Based on the last one that I noted, I am taking away this:  You have to find or make your own luck in this world - it can't be handed to you, you must work for it / seek it out yourself!  Have a great weekend everyone!

Be alert for those black cats.

I began the morning with some minor surgery and am lucky that all went well.
