Since today is the dreaded Friday the 13th, I decided to post some common superstitions. Of course I have to tempt fate and put 13 of them on here! *gasp* Some of them are quite funny! I did not realize just how many superstitions are out there. Are there any superstitions that you believe or just find really strange?
  • If you walk under a ladder, you will have bad luck
  • To break a mirror will bring you seven years bad luck
  • To open an umbrella in the house is to bring bad luck
  • It is bad luck to sing at the table
  • After receiving a container of food, the container should never be returned empty
  • When a dog howls, death is near
  • It is bad luck to chase someone with a broom
  • A sailor wearing an earring cannot drown
  • If you shiver, someone is walking on your future grave
  • Washing a car will bring rain ~hmmm...this one may be true;)
  • You must get out of bed on the same side you got in on or you will have bad luck
  • It is unlucky to rock an empty rocking chair
  • A hat on a bed will bring bad luck


  1. I had a hair appointment today, and when I set it the lady said, "Now, that's Friday the 13th, is that okay?" Um...yeah? Apparently I was her only appointment today because people avoid getting their hair done on Friday the 13th.

  2. I didn't know that about the food container. I return them empty to my mom all the time! ah ha
