The World’s Top Superstitions Revealed For Friday the 13th
With it being Friday the 13th, we figured we'd give you some information on the stuff you're worried about and shouldn't be, or aren't worried about but should be. A study of 2,000 people, commissioned by eToro, found what superstitions they believed, and there's some superstitions revealed that I know of, but I think more that I don't know of.
The research revealed that about 62% of people would never walk under a ladder, and 46% won't open an umbrella indoors. 1 in 5 said they're afraid to walk over 3 drain covers in a row, which I have never heard of.
