Did you know that in some countries, Tuesday the 13th is an unlucky day? In the US, Friday the 13th is supposed to be unlucky, but I remember learning in school that other countries have different customs. But, what is it about lucky or unlucky things? I always wondered how a rabbit's foot could be considered when the poor rabbit lost its poor foot. And what's with the worry about walking under a ladder. It's sorta common sense, no? I've walked under ladders before and it was with a great deal of care. I think superstitions are based on ignorance.
