By Kristin Mattern

Bring on the goose bumps this Friday the Thirteenth by having a superstition-based date with your baby. Take those old wives tales to heart as the two of you skip cracks hand-in-hand so you don’t break your mothers’ backs. Avoid walking under ladders or breaking mirrors – nobody wants seven years of bad luck. Take superstitious beliefs to a fun new place with this weekend date idea.

If you’ve never been superstitious, spend some time with your sweetie and look up some nifty ones from all over the world. There are a lot of bizarre superstitions out there, according to, like black cats being demons in disguise who create a barrier of evil when walking across your path. Looking at the new moon over your left shoulder (so specific!) or cutting your nails on a Friday are two more examples. While your love and you share some giggles about these negative juju actions, discover some good luck superstitions to perform and ward off the bad luck. Cross your fingers, knock on wood, spill wine while proposing a toast (just make sure you have paper towel on standby) and walk in the rain with your honey to soak up the good vibes.

Take a cue from the movie Freaky Friday and celebrate this Friday the Thirteenth by pretending to be one another. Act out actions each other normally does, or imitate catch phrases you both normally use. To really take it to the next level, swap clothes and just have fun! Remember to play nice though – don’t harp on your partner’s bad habits or annoying behaviors.

Continue this eerie date by watching Friday the 13th. Looking for something a little more vintage? Check out the Twilight Zone or a Hitchcock flick for some suspense. Your cutie is sure to snuggle close as you curl up together on the couch with some popcorn to finish off this fun Friday the Thirteenth-inspired day!

Freak out this Friday with a superstition-filled date!
