A new poll for Friday the 13th reveals the most common superstitions we believe in are: walking under ladders . . . knocking on wood . . . crossing your fingers . . . saying “bless you” . . . and not opening umbrellas indoors.
Does Friday, the 13th, make you nervous, or is it just another day? A new poll shows that 29% of adults (1-in-3!) believe they’ve been INJURED, because they didn’t follow a superstition they should have. Here are the top ten superstitions we apparently believe in:
1. Avoiding walking under a ladder. 62% said they’d never do it. And that’s just unsafe, really.
2. Knocking on wood.
3. Crossing your fingers.
4. Saying “bless you” when someone sneezes.
5. Not opening umbrellas indoors (again, unsafe).
6. “Find a penny, pick it up.” But only if it’s heads-up.
7. Putting shoes on a table. It’s supposed to be bad luck. And it’s just unsanitary, in general.
8. Breaking the wishbone on a turkey.
9. Throwing salt over your shoulder – if you spill some.
10. Keeping your wish a secret, when you blow out your candles.
The poll also reveals that 36% of us have a lucky number.
