Wear your underwear backwards for good luck!

We all know many Friday the 13th superstitions but there are many more obscure ones. Did you know that an old superstition says if you are experiencing a run of bad luck, wear you underwear backwards until your luck changes? This is advice I have never been given, but may have to try it.

Friday the 13th is a double, unlucky day in the minds of many. The number 13 is an unlucky number and Friday was a bad day in times of old. British executions were typically held on Fridays with 13 steps leading to the gallows with 13 loops on the noose and a coven of witches numbered 12 plus the devil making 13. These are only two examples of the many facts from history that put a strong fear in the minds of the people.

Most people know to watch out for black cats, don’t walk under ladders, don’t break a mirror and if you grew up in my house, don’t open a can of food upside down. If you do, throw it out immediately or it will sink the boat.

Here are a few superstitions involving underwear that you may not have heard of but may come in handy. In order to attract a man simply place Valarian leaves in your bra and panties. Then if a woman wants to marry she should borrow some underwear from a newly married woman and she will be married within a year.

My grandmother always told me to put my school books under my pillow and when I woke I would have absorbed all the book's knowledge. If you put your petticoat under your pillow you will dream of the man you are going to marry.

Enjoy these recommendation for the modern woman. Don’t open your umbrella in the house and have a lucky Friday the 13th……..
