Today it’s Friday 13th. Some people are really scared of today. I find it quite strange; although my head tells me that it is all superstitious nonsense, there is a part of me touching a piece of wood – just in case!
I guess the reason I’m touching the wood is because my Grandma is incredibly superstitious. I have often fallen foul of superstitions that I didn’t even know existed. For example, a few years ago someone gave me a set of kitchen knives as a birthday present. My Grandma informed me that this was as good as a death threat! I had to calm the situation by giving my friend a silver coin, so that I was ‘paying’ for the present, and not accepting knives as gifts!
I try to avoid doing things like walking under ladders, but don’t worry if I end up doing so (I worry more about my Grandma finding out I did it!) Are you superstitious? Do you avoid doing certain things, particularly on Friday 13th? I’d love to hear your stories!
