Every time a Friday the 13th rolls around (there are on average two per year), the staff at the Farmers’ Almanac has a lot of fun sharing some of the strange things people do to avoid bad luck, like avoiding ladders or wearing clothes inside out. Turns out, every culture has a belief that might seem strange or silly to another, but one thing’s for certain: myths and superstitions are all around us.
