Friday the 13th!

Does the thought of Friday the 13th freak you out? If it does, then you should know that today’s (un)lucky day is the first of three for 2012.  Don’t be alarmed — it’s just another day on the calendar.  However, it’s only human nature to make things up when things are feared and can’t be explained.  What do you believe?

Oh come on now — everyone has at least one thing they’re superstitious about.

Did you know, the fear of Friday the 13th is called “friggatriskaidekaphobia”.   You want to hear another tongue-twister — Fear is called “paraskevidekatriaphobia”.  These words alone scare me just try pronouncing them. Yikes! 😉

Here, then, is a list of the 13 most common superstitions.

  1. Find a penny, pick it up… {all day you’ll have good luck…}
  2. Don’t walk under a ladder!
  3. Beginner’s Luck.
  4. Black Cats crossing your path.
  5. Bad Luck come in threes
  6. 666 {sign of the beast}
  7. Don’t drop that mirror.
  8. Knock on wood.
  9. Make a wish on a wishbone.
  10. Cross your fingers.
  11. No umbrellas inside
  12. A rabbit’s foot will bring you luck
  13. Friday the 13th

In my opinion, I believe, what’s going to happen will happen regardless of the day, a rabbit’s foot in my pocket or if a black cat crosses my path but what’s interesting, is when things happen, you do start to question your own beliefs.  HA!  Knock on wood ::knocking::

Hope everyone has a fantastic Friday don’t worry about it being the 13th — it’s a lucky day if you ask me.

Until tomorrow… Peace & Love xoxo
