15 May 7 Things You Should Do On Friday The 13th
With only one Friday the 13th to absorb all the bad luck this year you might be thinking it’s going to be one of the worst bad luck days in recorded history, and you might be right. Here at Thrillvania Haunted House in Dallas we’re definitely gearing up for a real maelstrom and you should, too. Since Lucky Number 7 is about as far away from the Unlucky 13 as you can get, here are 7 things you can do to help keep bad luck at bay.
Get up on the right side of bed
The right side, not the left. If you can’t get up on the right side of your bed because it’s up against the wall, then sleep with your head at the foot of the bed on the night of Thursday the 12th.
Count your blessings
If you’re just naturally a worry wart or a Debbie Downer it won’t take much to make it seem like all the bad luck Friday the 13th has to offer is aimed in your direction. Start the day off by counting your blessings and if you do happen to spill you coffee all over your new suit you’ll realize it’s not the end of the world.
Carry your Good Luck charm
Put a lucky penny in your shoe, grab your lucky rabbit’s foot and pull on your lucky socks. Sometimes all it takes to avoid bad luck is the belief that you’re protected and it can’t touch you.
Think positive thoughts
Instead of focusing on all the bad things that happen on Friday the 13th, thumb your nose at the day and think nothing but positive thoughts. We’re more alert and less prone to accidents when we’re in a happy mood.
Demystify the day
Do some research to learn more about Friday the 13th and why it has such a bad reputation. It might surprise you to know it’s all based on centuries-old myths and legends with no basis in fact, whatsoever. It might also surprise you to know that if you parents had never told you Friday the 13th was a “bad” day, it would be just another day of the year.
Go ahead, tempt Fate today. Buy a lottery ticket, apply for a loan, step on a crack, break a mirror, walk under a ladder and cross paths with a black cat. It’s a proven fact that when you stand up to the bully he usually leaves you alone.
