For some, Friday, March 13th, is just a regular day of the year. For others, it’s a day full of avoiding those common superstitions.
Walking under ladders, black cats, avoiding breaking mirrors…just a few of the things some of us are avoiding today.
A recent survey in the UK and Ireland found that over half the people there still believe in at least one superstition.
We might be well into the 21st century, but more than half the nation is living of fear of something bad happening if their superstitions aren’t followed.
Touching wood for good luck is the most common custom, with 54% of respondents admitting to it.
52% avoid walking under ladders, and 46 per cent believe a broken mirror will mean seven years of bad luck.
As for fear of a Friday the 13th. 44 per cent of those surveyed would like to avoid the day altogether. There are three Friday the 13th’s in 2015 .After today, they’ve survived through two of them, the other is in November.
