Superstitions: What Are You Doing on Friday 13?

It is a Friday 13, at a waning moon, close to Halloween. What could possibly go wrong today?

Well, statistically, nothing more than usual.

However, I have had so many disastrous Friday 13s - from medical emergencies to expensive equipment failures and, one Friday 13, my blog post about the day going missing - that I get wary around this date. In fact, I'm going to be pinning a rowan cross to my front door to ward off trouble.

But what are your thoughts on the matter?

Do you take magical or mundane precautions to avoid mishaps or do you carry on as usual?

What are you going to be doing today - and will you be taking risks, or avoiding them?

Do leave a comment.

Oh poor you! I had some near misses yesterday, including parking my car in a spot next to a large tree. Came back to find some men were felling said tree! The car is covered in bits of sawdust and leaves, but thankfully not damaged. Not so lucky for the poor tree though :(
