Are you superstitious?

In honor of Friday the 13th, I thought we could discuss our crazy superstitions! I definitely knock on wood, I make a wish when the clock is at 11:11, and I hate the number 13! I never have the TV volume at 13, and I was so glad when my first child wasn't born on his due date, November 13.

Anyone else as crazy as I am?

I never heard about wishing at 11:11.......... Why?
I don't knock on wood, I love black cats, I don't like the number 13 but that's just cuz I hate odd numbers :) I sit on my moms grave when I go to it, never heard that was an issue either! I think juLeah has it spot on, if you go looking for bad things you will either notice more then normal or even create them subconsciously!
My day has been great today! But that could be because I'm still on a baby high cuz Fierna was born this past Tuesday :)

I don't walk over a person's grave. If I can see where the foot stone is, I will walk all the way around it. But as for anything besides that, no I'm not really superstitious. I love Friday the 13, although it's Saturday the 14th that bothers me! Don't ask me why but it seems like I have always had bad luck on Saturday the 14th.

I'm having a great friday the 13th. Always do. It's my lucky day, every year. =) The only superstition I actually follow is when I spill salt, I throw a pinch over my shoulder.

The only superstitions I follow are not to walk under a ladder or open an umbrella in the house...but that's only because they seem logical to me :)

I'm just not superstitious. The number 13 isn't unlucky for me....nor is Friday the 13th. In fact, today was my best day all week! I took a spa day for mommy so that I'm ready for vacation :)

Lol I knock on wood and make a wish at 11:11 too. I don't think Friday the 13th is unlucky though since my eldest daughter was born on the 13th on a Friday :) Other than that I don't think I have any other superstitions.

Haha...I make a wish when the time is 11:11 and knock on wood as well but I wouldn't say I'm suerstitious. I thinkthese things were ingrained at a young age and have become more of a habbit than anything. I also throw salt over my shoulder when I spill it and lift my feet when driving over railway tracks.

Also not everyone believes Friday the 13th is unlucky. That superstition comes from the Knights Templer. When the Catholic church odered the Knights killed it was done on October Friday 13th (I don't remember the year). A very unlucky day if you were a Templar.

It's not crazy. These things have as much power as we give them. If you really think bad things will happen on the 13th, odds are they will. You will be looking for them, actually bringing them into your world. What is interesting to me is the lack of good supersistions .... maybe we ought to start one. Let's say the number 7 is lucky, many think so already, we are ahead of the game. Each 7th of each month is very lucky. The 7th of July is very very lucky. I wouldn't take long for this to catch on and people would start reporting about the very good/ lucky thing that happened to them on that day, confirming the truth about the number 7.
