Happy (maybe not the right word) Friday 13, folks!
Irish people are a superstitious bunch. We’ve got all sorts of little tricks and charms to ward off bad luck, and they make complete sense to us.
But to the outside observer, well, we probably look a bit mad.
We can’t be the only ones who regularly do this. One for sorrow! You can’t ignore it, even if it makes all the other people on this street think you’re waving at them. Two for joy and you’re grand, though.
Seeing a penny and picking it up may give you luck, alright, but spitting on it gives you MORE. Who cares if it looks disgusting?
We just can’t shake this one. It just seems like an extremely reckless thing to do.
A burning left ear means someone’s saying something nice about you, a burning right ear means they’re saying something nasty. Trust no bitch, basically.
Or else we’ll have a fight! Slap me back, quick!
You’ll be a rich woman soon. IT HAS BEEN FORETOLD.
Jesus CHRIST, do you even know what you’ve DONE, anything could happen now and it’s all because of your €11 Penneys flats that you so CASUALLY put on the table, you CRETIN.
Even if you haven’t been to Mass in ten years. It doesn’t feel right just leaving it.
Not even slightly scientifically proven, but you do feel like the bad thing can’t happen now you’ve felt up your dresser a little bit.
Oh brilliant, must buy a scratchcard.
