SUPERSTITIONS (intermediate video)

Friday 13th, what a terrible day! Or is it Tuesday 13th? Or perhaps Friday the 17th?  The worst things can happen to you on those days, you know? But it depends on which country you live in. How can this be??

In some places (the UK and the USA, for example) only misfortune can occur if the 13th falls on a Friday. In others, such as Spanish-speaking countries, the unlucky day is Tuesday 13th, whereas in Italy you should be especially careful on Friday the 17th!

Superstitions make you fear that things might go wrong in certain circumstances, or if you do (or don't do) certain things.

What superstitions do you know? Do you believe in luck?

Please, tomorrow avoid cats, ladders, umbrellas and... just in case, touch wood!  Or even better, stay in bed all day!
