    FRIDAY the 13th - Are You Superstitious ??
    I was born on the 13th ( many moons ago ) and try to brush off the stigma around Friday the 13th.

    Have had several birthdays on a Friday!

    But I gotta say that I'm still more cautious ( and a bit nervous ) when I go out on a Friday, which happens to be the 13th.

    Kind of like Kevin's sig about God.

    Better Safe Than Sorry Eh?

    Ahhh, Jimmy - but the lore has it that "luck" today can be either bad OR good.

    See my Paraskevidekatriaphobia Contest thread.

    But as you say, "Better safe than sorry." So keep away from black cats and ladders, don't step on cracks in the pavement, etc...

    I am also a 13 girl - and my birthday is the luckiest of all 7/13. Plenty of Friday the 13th birthdays for me too. Today is my best friend's birthday, too.

    So, no superstitions, just luck today.

    When I smoked I was completely scared of white lighters. It was a superstition from college that for some reason scared me lol.

    Well, I can fix your problems fast and easy ... and you will never have to worry about Friday the 13th ever again ... good luck will prevail. As the Wiccans say, you will be rewarded 3 times.

    Just go to my sites and buy 13 items, the higher the ticket price the better. Then perform this ritual on the 13th of every month from now on.

    Don't worry be happy, enjoy your new stuff.

    I'm not Superstitious.

    I always heard it was bad luck to be Superstitious.

    Each Friday the 13th I celebrate by walking under a ladder after spilling salt and letting my black cat cross my path. I rode my bicycle 8.5 miles to the office today a little later than normal, which meant a lot more traffic; still, a good ride with courteous, alert drivers. I tend to have very enjoyable Friday the 13ths. I hope all of yours are as good.

    As far as superstitions go, we've got nothing on the Japanese. One day I was talking to an old fisherman in Okinawa who told me he wasn't on the water that day because it was the day of the dead. That's the one day of the year their ancestors' spirits come back home to feast. The living lay out food for them and everything. The fisherman said it was bad luck to be on the water that day. I asked him if he believed that. He said no, but he wasn't about to try his luck.

    The only thing I'm superstitious about is superstitious people. They're so sure something bad is going to happen if they [drop a knife/walk under a ladder/break a mirror] that I think it's dangerous simply to be around them.

    I think good things are going to happen today. Nope, I'm not superstitious. Every day has good things, every day has bad. Friday the 13th is just another day.
