Common Superstitions


Well starting off the day of Friday 13th with a look at some of the common superstitions that have been around for centuries. I don't know whether I believe in them myself, some I do and some I don't. Give me three drains and I will walk across all of them on purpose. But Friday 13th I take extra care, keep myself to myself and stay out of harms way. We also have one next month too if you want a heads up!

  1. I've actually got a book that tells you the origins of most of the superstitions in the British isles, it's pretty interesting.
