Unlucky Friday the 13th is apparently the most popular superstition in the world. I, for one, do not have supersititious beliefs, I open umbrellas inside, I like black cats, and I confidently walk under ladders. If you do fear Friday the 13th you have a paraskevidekatriaphobia, and I suggest you cease reading this post immediately.I dedicate this post to all our readers, may you have an unremarkable Friday the 13th! Here are some superstitious things from our collection:
Toy cat from the Jandaschewsky collection
Superstition: If a black cat walks towards you it brings good luck, if it walks away from you it takes your luck away.
NSW ambulance service ambulance.
Superstition: Seeing an ambulance is bad luck unless you pinch your nose or hold your breathe until you see a black or brown dog.
Anatomical model of the human ear.
Superstition: If your right ear itches someone is speaking well of you, if your left ear itches someone is speaking ill of you.
Superstition: If you drop a pair of scissors it means your lover is being unfaithful to you.
Pencil from the Collard and Collard Collection
(This one is dedicated to all those students sitting their HSC exams at the moment)
Superstition: Use the same pencil to take a test that you used for studying as the pencil remembers the answers!
Do you have any little quirks when Friday the 13th comes around? Avoid cracks in the pavement? Throw salt over your shoulder? I want to hear some whacky ones!
