It makes me think though, why does the number 13 represent phobias and superstition. When I was in university, I lived at number 14 which was next to number 12, no number 13 there!
If you have a phobia of today and are still sat in bed in your pj's with the duvet up tight did you know that you suffer from paraskevidekatriaphobia! Its a mouthful!
So, while reading about the superstitions linked with today, I 've been thinking about the superstitions that I follow (which have been passed on to me by my mother). Here's my list, maybe you can add yours on the end:
- putting new shoes on the table is bad luck
- whistling on a Sunday brings you bad luck
- throwing salt over your shoulder if you've spilt some!
