About Defy Superstition Day

Date When Celebrated: Defy Superstition Day is always observed on September 13

Defy Superstition Day is your opportunity to break those superstitious beliefs that you have been living with most, or all, of your life. Defy Superstition Day is a September 13 holiday for a reason. It defies the superstition around the number 13 being unlucky.

Many people have a long list of superstitions. Tops on the list is the unlucky number 13. Black cats are also an object to be wary of. Walking under a ladder has always been viewed as something to avoid (actually, there is some logic to this superstition). The list goes on, and on, and on.

Did you Know? Hotels do not have a 13th floor or a room #13. Hotels usually do not have any room that ends in #13. It’s all because people are superstitious about this number.

Defy Superstition Day was created to help you to eliminate superstitions that have been haunting you. Use today as it is intended……. to blow away the superstitions in your life.
