Superstitions and Friday the 13th

Well,it's Friday the 13th, only a few hours left of it in Oz.
Does anyone have any phobias about this day?


What other superstitions do you have?

Black cats crossing your path!

Re: Superstitions and Friday the 13th

I have never been superstitious. Played at it during a child but never really believed it. I believe some actors can be very superstitious. Hope the play my son is in doesn't have actors like that as it will be a difficult night tonight. I think people worrying about it is the main problem.

Re: Superstitions and Friday the 13th

Hi gibbo,
What a name.
It sounds a bit like supercalifragilisticexpealidocius!

Funny superstitions??
My mum would be angry if we put a new pair of shoes on the table.

Re: Superstitions and Friday the 13th

I agree DW.
We could spend all our lives worrying about them, walking under a ladder etc. In your son's case the saying would be "break a leg". Hope he has a good night.

I bet that word was 'cut & pasted'.

Not superstitious at all, touch wood.
