Locking yourself in your room is one way to avoid catastrophe on Friday the 13th. But here are some steps you can take to bring yourself good luck on FRIDAY the 13th!

  • Cut your finger nails on a Friday to avoid a toothache during the month.
  • Pick the first violets of spring.
  • When you set the table, place the salt down first.
  • If you drop a spoon, expect friends to drop by soon.
  • If your left hand itches, money will come to you.
  • Put a red bow on a newborn baby.
  • Don't sweep dust out the front door or you'll sweep away good luck.
