2. Opening Umbrellas Indoors
Now hopefully it will just be a bright, sunny Friday the 13th..(Anywhere in the world but Britain) but if it isn’t (Most likely), make sure you don’t open your umbrella until you are safely outside. Superstition states that not only does it bring bad luck to you, but opening an umbrella indoors will bring bad luck to the entire building.
3. New Shoes
We all know your new shoes are “on fleek,” but don’t put them on a table for your next Instagram picture. An uncommon superstition is that if you put shoes on a table, you could risk a family member’s death..Best not.
You may or may not know the phrase “Step on a crack, break your mother’s back.” Well you do now.. If you’re superstitious — and you love your mom — don’t go jump on a lot of cracks. Just to be sure.
Now hopefully you're not a painter or anyone that needs to go up a ladder on a Friday 13th. Not only is walking under a ladder very unsafe, but it is also very unlucky. However, there are some measures you can take to avoid the bad luck. spit three times through the ladder’s rungs or cross your fingers until you see a dog.. Bit far "fetched".
6. The Number 13
Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of the number 13. Many hospitals do not even have a room number 13. It’s a good idea to avoid the number 13 is to stay away from buildings with a 13th floor and never seat 13 at a dinner table. Maybe just stay away from everything with a 1 & 3 relevance.
If you are eating dinner, lay off the salt. Reduce your sodium intake and remain free of bad luck. Spilling salt is considered very unlucky, but it is easy to fix. Take a pinch of the salt and throw it over your left shoulder.. No harm done.
A classic superstition. Breaking a mirror is known to bring seven years of bad luck. Instead of using a hand mirror, try one that is attached to a wall and just keep your distance..a big distance.
9. The Day Itself
Friday the 13th is known as being a very unlucky day. It might be a better idea to just stay in bed all day and avoid everything all together as a way to avoid all bad luck.
So yeah. Basically just avoid everything and everyone on Friday 13th..Just in case. (Maybe come up with a better excuse for your boss though).
