- https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/author/pensitivity101/ asked the questions in regarding to luck. I’m not the luckiest person in the world (when it is money related), but I am lucky with my family. I grew up feeling loved, and I shared the love with my own children.
- How many years bad luck do you get if you break a mirror? Depends on how many mirrors lol. I tend to avoid them myself. Especially when I see a lone magpie. They’re a sorrowful bird on their own, and only find joy in a mate.
3. What shouldn’t you walk under? Pigeons, they don’t care where they go.
3. Why are black cats crossing your path considered unlucky? Unlucky for who? Not for us, but the cats don’t like us very much.
4. Why do we ‘knock on wood’? Just in case, I mean don’t want to anger the fortune gods.
5. Why are horseshoes considered lucky? They’re lucky for the horse, and stop their feet from aching.
6. Why do we cross our fingers for good luck? Again, need all the luck I can get. Especially going on a holiday tomorrow with a car full of luggage (plus the overhead) A toddler, two dogs including my behemoth of a Rottweiler.
7. Why is 13 considered an unlucky number? It was in a pub in Ireland. There were thirteen leprechauns on a pub crawl. They got so drunk, their wives wouldn’t let them in the house. The thirteenth man lost the pot of gold.
8. On the other hand, why is 7 considered lucky? The seventh Leprechaun managed to find the pot of gold under a strawberry bush. His wife let him in his house, but the others had to stay outside until they sobered up.
9. What is signified by itchy hands? It is a sign you want to go to Bingo and win the last house of the night. Bingo players ‘itchy hands’ is actually a disease that doctors have written reports on.
10. Why should you not put shoes on the table? I mean, you don’t know where you have walked in.
Friday the 13th is classed as unlucky, but it was on that night the wife of the Leprechaun (7) had itchy hands. She decided to go to Bingo and won ‘one thousand pounds.’ She persuaded her friend (wife of number thirteen) to go with her. They shared the winnings and from then on meeting a leprechaun on a bingo night was lucky.
My mum, a lover of bingo, won a thousand pounds on Friday the Thirteenth. I remember her spreading all the notes on our front room table. I got a bike from the money, and we had a great holiday with some of it. I don’t class that day as unlucky. We make our own luck – although I’m still careful not to break any mirrors.
