Thirteen Superstitions I Believe In (for Ketchup With Us)

Seeing as it is Friday the 13th (spooky), I started thinking about the most common superstitions that people believe in.  I wanted to see if there were many that I, too, believe in.  I honestly didn’t think so, but I was wrong.  In fact, of the most popular ones, I believe in 13.  Today’s Ketchup With Us numbered blog post is…

Thirteen (Oh, that’s weird!)  Superstitions I Believe In


1)  Horseshoes are good luck.

2)  Bad things happen on Friday the 13th.

3)  Brides must have something old, new, borrowed, and blue.

4)  Crossing your fingers means good luck.

5)  The number 13 is bad luck.

6)  It’s lucky to wish on a shooting star.

7)  Opening an umbrella indoors means bad luck.  (I was told it would mean a death in the family.)


8)  Having a rabbit’s foot brings good luck.

9)  Knocking on wood brings protection from tempting fate (jinxing something).

10) Breaking a mirror brings 7 years of bad luck.

11) A four leaf clover brings good luck.


12) Walking under a ladder is bad luck.

How about you?  Do you believe in any superstitions?  Do you believe in the ones I’ve listed above?  I’d love to hear from you.
