Happy Defy Superstition Day!

Once in a while I check to see what unique events, holidays and celebrations fall on days of the month.  Normally they are very mondane or just down right boring like national blueberry popcycle day but one of today's I think is great.  Today is National Defy Superstiton Day, what a great way to start the middle of your week!?  Break every superstition you have and then duck and cover for the rest until Sunday or whenever you feel you won't get hit with the whammy.

I am typically not a superstitious person but ever since I learned about them as a child I found myself actually kind of actracted to the mythes and lores.  Maybe amused or entertained by them is a better way to describe it.  The traditional superstitions I think are rather quirky and fun and have often find them referenced in the old postcards I collect.  The imagery of people freeking out over a black cat crossing their path or throwing salt over their shoulder would make a rather fun theme for a postcard collection.
