Top 10 False Friday the 13th Myths

No not the horror franchise of the same name, but the rare day people make it seem like is a very unlucky day. Here are some of those false myths people make.

The Top Ten

1 Seeing crows can result in bad luck

Seeing a animal won't result in automatic bad luck.

2 Opening a umbrella indoors will result in bad luck

Cliche but eh had to include it.

3 Harvesting on Friday the 13th is taboo

No explanation required.

4 Laying or kneeling on a ship/ boat or launching a ship/ boat will result in misfortune

Nothing supernatural will happen.

5 Any child born on Friday the 13th is doomed to be tortured

Self explanatory at most.

My mom was born on thurdasy the 13, and well her life was hard... but still, false myth - Lucretia

6 Getting married will make you live a cat-dog life

Like the rest of the items this is just plain and simply bogus.

7 If you hear any news it makes you a year older and with wrinkles

*YAWN* Do I really need to explain why for this one?

8 If you move somewhere you won't stay there very long

I think it's blatantly obvious that this is false as well.

9 Seeing black cats is taboo and will give you bad luck

Also not true for obvious reasons.

10 Smashing a mirror gives you bad luck

Not true, can easily be disproven. Granted if you don't wear shoes your feet might bleed but that's about it.
