Waking up this morning on Friday 13th, how did you feel? Is it just another day, or have you been dreading the unlucky number 13?!
As a semi superstitious person, Friday the 13th has never bothered me (especially as I have had a few birthdays fall on that date!). And as a proud owner of two black cats, for me having black cats is a good omen.
Half of Brits believe old superstitions such as keeping your fingers crossed and not walking under ladders DO bring them good luck, a new survey has shown. Researchers, who carried out a detailed study among 2000 adults, found that over a third would describe themselves as ‘lucky’, and put their good fortune down to adhering to rules such as never stepping on cracks in pavements and throwing spilt salt over their shoulder.
