Friday the 13th and other superstitions

Today is Friday the 13th
Supposedly an unlucky day
And poor black cats get a bad rap too
If they cross your path

Good thing this guy has a very white face
He needs all the help he can get
To avoid a bad reputation

Do you throw salt over your shoulder?
Avoid walking under ladders?
Keep umbrellas in hall unopened?
What superstitions do you know about?

My step dad's mom never learned to drive. She always walked to the corner with her little metal cart, caught the bus to her destination, returned with her little cart full of groceries. But if she had a black cat pass in front of her.....she would walk back to the house and go 2-3 blocks down, and 3-5 blocks over and up to the main street where the bus route was "just in case." Happy Friday the 13th!

My grandparents always considered Friday the 13th a lucky day and they said if a black cat ever took up at your house it was also good luck. I'm going with that! Hope you have a great weekend.

My husband’s grandma would also go back the other way if a black cat crossed her path! She was very superstitious!!! In some cultures, black cats are good luck!!! Hope you have a great Friday the 13th!!!

Friday the 13th didn't bother me at all today. My aunt used to wear the number 13 in a gold charm around her neck. She said it was lucky! It's too bad black kitties are considered unlucky. I like them!!
