My 5 Superstitious

Yes, I am superstitious and not just around Halloween. I don’t know where these really stemmed from for me but to this day I will not do them and if I do I react. I know it is silly but while some are silly some actually make sense to me. Below I will list my top 5 Superstitions but I’d love to hear yours.


Ladders- Yes, I’m the freak that will not walk under a ladder. I mean you can’t tell me it is wise to walk under one can you? Think about it, if you walk under a ladder and the thing somehow collapses on you that is going to hurt. I never go under them at a bookstore either, picture someone being above you, you move it just slightly and they fall off. Or what about you being under it and a book falling from above. OUCH.

So yes, I do not walk under ladders, you are asking for something to happen.

Umbrella- Nope, never, ever open an umbrella inside a house….at least not around me. For one it is bad luck to open them in your house. Two if you do and the tip hits something you could possibly break something. Not to mention if you open an umbrella in your house how are you going to get it through your door?

If I’m walking with someone I tend to shout bread and butter if a pole comes between us or something. I don’t know where it came from or when I started doing it but I do.

Yes, if you have an eyelash falling I will tell you to make a wish. If the clasp of your necklace is in front instead of back I will do the one swoop to get it to the back. Pick up a penny on the ground but only if it is heads, I won’t pick it up on tails. No, I’m okay with a black cat crossing my path, in fact I had a black cat that I adored and would love another one. The number 13 doesn’t phase me, in fact I find myself luckier on that day. What superstitions do you have?

  1. I also don’t walk under ladders or open umbrellas indoors. I’ve heard that if you’re walking and split a pole, the older person will die before you. I have no idea where that came from either, so strange!

  2. I am the same with the number 13 my hubby was born friday the 13th so of course its luck for me πŸ™‚ We also hold out breath n a tunnel (this one is hard in a long tunnel lol) and when passing a cemetary πŸ™‚

  3. I think that superstitions are very true especially around Halloween!

  4. Yes I’m very superstitious for stuff like that but I think with me the whole bridges and tunnel thing is in case it collapses I’ll be prepared. Oh and yes I see why 13 is lucky for you.

    I am not very superstitious.
    I used to be afraid of black cat on the road, but then I read that some countries believe it to be lucky, so I changed my mind about black cats πŸ™‚

    Lol. I feel the same way about an umbrella. I think we all do.

  7. im not really too superstitious, but i still dont press my luck on a lot of things…especially walking under a ladder. i mean, its just not safe maintenance practice! πŸ™‚ great post!

  8. I definitely will avoid walking under a ladder so i guess that makes me superstitious. I have heard about the umbrella but didn’t take that one as seriously.

    I’m totally with you! I freak out about supersitions!

  10. Yes to all the above, plus holding my breath when passing a cemetery. Its weird, I know.

  11. I am not superstitious AT ALL. I would love to hear about how some superstitions came to be, though!

    I’m very superstitious, too. I don’t go out during Friday the 13th.

  13. Kimberly Bergeron says:

    I am not superstitous, but I do laugh when someone opens an umbrella in the house! And tell them to BEWARE!!!

  14. Stephanie says:

    I had a grandpa that said if a spider falls in front of you that money is coming your way.

  15. I don’t like three sixes together. I do have my son blow his eyelash off of my hand and make a wish if one falls out and I notice it. πŸ™‚

  16. I’m not really superstitious – but if a black cat crosses in front of me I do think – oh, that is supposed to be bad luck. And I joke that I’ve broken enough mirrors to explain my luck for the rest of my life!

    I was thinking about it and I’m not superstitions about anything that I’m aware of at least. I think they are very interesting though.
