Woo…wooo…. It’s Friday and Friday the 13th at that, a historic day, cataloging bad luck through the ages…here are a number of popular myths and superstitions surrounding the day, most famously:
If you cut your hair on Friday the 13th, someone in your family will die.
If a funeral procession passes you on Friday the 13th, you will be the next to die.
Do not start a trip on Friday or you will encounter misfortune.
If you break a mirror on Friday the 13th, you will have seven years of bad luck. ( I thought this one was anytime you broke a mirror.)
A child born on Friday the 13th will be unlucky for life. (Ha, my Grandmother was born on a Friday the 13th and lived well into her 90’s… sounds pretty lucky to me.)
Ships that set sail on a Friday will have bad luck.
If you walk under a ladder (I would think so… somebody on the ladder could drop a hammer on your head.)or if a black cat(Poor kitties) crosses you on Friday the 13th, you will have bad luck.
I, myself don’t believe in Friday the 13th, I think it’s only bad luck if you are a Knights Templar, who were rounded up starting at dawn Friday the 13th, 1307. But that’s just me. However… don’t knock it, cuz ya just never know…
On with the Friday 5…
I’m going with the Biddy Girl to see “50 Shades of Gray”… I did ask the Mr. if he wanted to go with me, 3 guesses on what that answer was… but you probably won’t need them!
Y’all have a great day… and be careful out there, it is Friday the 13th.
Till next time…OXOX
