Happy Friday the 13th everyone. In the spirit of today, Friday the 13th's ill-omened notion, I thought I'd share some Italian superstitions that have been passed down from my family:
Rather than Friday the 13th, Italians have Friday the 17th as a day of bad luck
Rain on your wedding day brings good luck!
If a bird poops on you is the best of luck!
Someone who is wanting to find a significant other burns incense of rosemary & laurel right before midnight
To find a spouse, turn statues of St. Anthony upside down
When someone opens a champagne bottle, if the cork falls on you, you will be married within the year
If you're wanting to find a new lover the upcoming year, wear red undies to bed on New Year's Eve
BUONA FORTUNA A TUTTI!
Good Luck Everyone!
