Are you superstitious? Do you believe in bad omens? Do you walk around a ladder instead of underneath it? If a black cat crossed your path, would it bother you? Do you believe in Friday the 13th and all the hullabaloo about it? Have you felt like you ever had bad luck on a Friday the 13th? Do you think you are manifesting it?
I’m really interested in reading what you think so please comment below!
Personally I’m not bothered by Friday the 13th. I lived in Spain years ago and for Spaniards, it was Tuesday the 13th which was the problem and not Friday, so I guess I’ve simply adopted that way of thinking.
But for those of you who are fear leaving your home today, going to work, traveling, investing or doing anything outside of your comfort zone, you are not alone. You may have something called…
friggatriskaidekaphobia: fear of Friday the 13th!
Yes, it’s true. It’s a real phobia and there are many people who suffer from it. So I guess I’m asking, are you one of them? No judgment here, you know I love to connect with you!
I personally do not believe in Friday the 13 being bad or unlucky. And I feel bad for all of the black cats that have to deal with people thinking they are unlucky, too. 😊
I know, I feel the same way! But there is a lot of misinformation out there and hopefully we can keep all the animals safe every day. Thanks for stopping by! ♥
We keep Marley our black cat in on Halloween eve and Friday the 13th. It’s sad but people do weird things out of fear of the unknown.
I know, it’s sad isn’t it? I am glad you keep Marley safe Louise! How’s the puppy doing these days? ♥
No, I’m not one of them…though I confess to feeling a twinge of anxiety when I see that day of the week combined with that number. But that is for no reason except hearing about it all my life — have never had bad things happen on that day.
I DO, however, love adding that fabulous new word to my vocabulary (assuming I’ll remember it…). 🙂
Well, if you can’t remember, you can always come back to my blog! I love learning something new everyday and this was certainly a new word for me! I wonder how many people were familiar with the word already? ♥

Love this ~ thanks for the reminder! I have a big grin on my face! ♥ MEOW
No fear of superstitions. It is what you think that dictates your actions and leads to your reality. I love the post above about the black cat, true. People create superstitions to explain coincidence. Mind over superstition.
Amen Jonathan! I heartily agree with you! ♥
I too find superstitions and their origins very interesting. I don’t believe in superstitions but a few years ago took it too far making a point of walking under lasers and opening umbrellas indoors but then realised that I was making it a superstition of my own. Thanks for sharing this is a very interesting post.
Thanks Eric! I love that you are still here after testing the superstitions. I think it’s our core belief systems that make/break superstitions. What you believe, comes to you I think. Thanks for sharing!
My mother was very superstitious but over the years have let it all go. My daughter was born on Friday the 13th. I consider it a lucky day now. of course there is no luck, just inspiration meeting perspiration. 🙂 We are quite a superstitious lot, we humans. Animals, not so much. 🙂
Marlene, I love your comment! I believe as you do in inspiration meeting perspiration! What a great concept and phrase. Thanks for sharing! ♥ P.S. I believe being born on the 13th is a blessing.
