Not only is it Friday the 13th, but tonight there is also suppose to be a full moon. Now if you're the superstitious type or just like a good laugh, then read my own ten tips on protecting yourself.

  1. Don't break any mirrors, or really don't even go near one today.
  2. If you're going out tonight, carry anything made out of pure silver with you.
  3. If you don't have silver, according to some legends mercury works to kill a werewolf.
  4. Throw salt over your shoulder at least five times today.
  5. Don't go anywhere with the words "Crystal Lake."
  6. Watch out for black cats, and don't go under any ladders.
  7. Don't go anywhere with 13 floors.
  8. If you do go to a hotel with 13 floors, don't sleep on that floor.
  9. Definitely do go to the casino, it's not a lucky day.
  10. Carry some wolfsbane with you, because remember again tonight is a full moon!
  11. It doesn't hurt to pack your pockets with four leaf clovers.
  12. Carry a horseshoe with you especially if you're leaving the house!
  13. Last but not least, be nice because karma is double on Friday the 13th!

Of course these tips are merely little jokes, there is nothing wrong with a black cat, and of course you probably won't be seeing any werewolves tonight, but nevertheless this article was a fun look at superstitions. Remember, don't be impressionable!

Happy Friday the 13th!
