Top 10 Myths and Superstitions For Friday the 13th

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.

Even those who say, “I’m not superstitious” might be found picking four-leaf clovers or wearing a lucky hat to cheer on their favorite baseball team. We thought it would be fun to compile a list of our Top 10 most popular articles on myths and superstitions from across the globe. Take a look:

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
