Friday the 13th: Freaky or Superstitious?

Superstitions are supernatural causalities on human subjects.

Here are a few popular ones:

  • Friday the thirteenth is an unlucky day
  • A rabbit's foot brings good luck
  • To find a four-leaf clover is to find good luck
  • If you walk under a ladder, you will have bad luck
  • If a black cat crosses your path 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
  • An itchy palm means money will come your way
  • A beginner will always have good luck: beginner's luck
  • A cat has nine lives
  • Eating fish makes you smart
  • Toads cause warts
  • A cricket in the house brings good luck

Sounds familiar? Do you subscribe to any of these or know someone who does?


My palms always itch.....when the hub gets paid lol. A cricket in the house brings good luck that's a lie we had a bunch in our house and we have yet to see good luck. I don't usually believe in all that stuff but it does keep hope alive.

I know a LOT of people who subscribe to the superstition!! It's just a scary movie day for me lolll!

my parents tell me that eating fish will make you smart, so we ate alot of fish when i was younger. lol!
happy friday!

stumbled onto your blog and just wanted to show you some blog luv!!
def enjoyed reading this post!!

LOL I have heard all of these. I would like to believe they are true but I haven't found them to be...especially the itchy palm. ;)

Hey All,

The itchy palm brings money if you don't scratch it. If you scratch you lose. Never heard about the cricket though. Little itch brings little money under $100, big itch big money over $100 at least this is what I was told. Friday the 13th bad luck for people that believe it is bad luck

I avoid crossing the paths of black cats and breaking mirrors, to the day. Not really believing in superstitions on a whole. But I do respect the ones mentioned.

Tupac Shakur died on September 13, 1996 on a Friday and, I admit, that memory had me shook for awhile.
