Stepping under a ladder on Friday 13th whilst clutching a horseshoe the right way up is a great way of starting off National Defy Superstition Day. From throwing salt over your shoulder if you spill some to worrying about black cats, the world is full of superstitions. National Defy Superstition Day gives you the chance to let your rational mind overcome these strange dictates to prove once and for all that a solo magpie or treading on cracks in the pavement have no influence on your life.

You may wish to celebrate by holding a “Defy Superstition” party. Guests must, of course, wear red and white together, have dinner around a table set for thirteen and all put umbrellas up whilst indoors. Otherwise, why not challenge yourself to see how many superstitions you can break in an hour? A great opportunity to face your fears, National Defy Superstition Day is always worth celebrating.
