Thursday Thirteen # 4



Thirteen Shoe Superstitions!


  1. If a woman walks without shoes during the six weeks following childbirth, then her child will have a dangerous fall when it is beginning to walk.
  2. To cure a toothache, burn an old shoe and breathe in the smoke.
  3. If you take a lock of hair from your intended loved one, fold it in a piece of cloth, folding it toward you and put it in your shoe, it will make you loved one follow you anywhere.
  4. Don't buy your man a pair of shoes, or he will walk out of your life forever!
  5. If you are the victim of an occult attack, wear your shoes on the wrong foot and wear your clothes inside out a protection from evil magic.
  6. Never walk around with one shoe on and one shoe off, it will make you loose your mind.
  7. Never accept a gift of old shoes, or you will inherit the previous owners trouble.
  8. To dream of what your next boyfriend will look like, get a sprig of rosemary and a sprig of thyme. Sprinkle them three times with water and place an herb in each shoe. Then place the shoes at the foot of your bed.
  9. To identify a murderer, you must first obtain a shoe worn by a baby of less than a year old (of the same gender as the murder victim's). After the victim has been buried, dig down as deep as possible, as close to the heart as possible, without touching the coffin or the vault. Take a handful of dirt at the bottom of the hole, and put it in the baby shoe. At midnight burn the shoe and call upon the spirit of the victim to bring the murderer back. Then carry the ashes back to the grave and bury them in another hole in the middle of the ground above the grave. In a matter of days, the murderer will identify himself somehow.
  10. On your birthday, when you go to bed at night, take off your shoe or slipper. Stand with your back to the door and throw the shoe over your head, You must not look at it before morning. If the toe points to the door, you will be a bride before the end of the year. (Man, now I have to wait a while year to become bride!)
  11. Drop an old shoe outside by the front door as you leave the house on a journey and then you will not have any bad luck on the trip.
  12. To keep your man faithful, take his handkerchief, a new one, and stick it in his left shoe all night long while you are having sex with him, then bury the handkerchief under the house in the morning and it will keep him coming home.
  13. Old shoes should be worn on Friday the 13th for good luck!
