Friday the 13th! Be Lucky with these

There are some general superstitions in Britain that people think are lucky or unlucky. Friday the 13th is considered an unlucky day. So check out these lucky items from my fellow folksy shops!

It's lucky to meet a black cat. Black Cats are featured on many good luck greetings cards and birthday cards in England.

Lucky Number 7!

A horseshoe over the door brings good luck. But the horseshoe needs to be the right way up. The luck runs out of the horseshoe if it is upside down. Horseshoes are generally a sign of good luck and feature on many good luck cards.

Catch falling leaves in Autumn and you will have good luck. Every leaf means a lucky month next year.

Lucky to find a clover plant with four leaves.

On the first day of the month it is lucky to say "white rabbits, white rabbits white rabbits," before uttering your first word of the day.

Lucky to touch wood. We touch; knock on wood, to make something come true.

Putting money in the pocket of new clothes brings good luck. Put this bracelet on if you don't have a back pocket!
