If you give a wallet or purse to someone put a penny in it.
The number 13 is associated with Friday the 13th and people have fears of the number 3, called triscadiscaphobia (sp)?

Now again, if you did stay on the 14th floor and nothing bad happened, then the superstition becomes kinda silly doesn't it?

Here's where I get confused. If 14 is actually 13, and nothing bad happens, then it could be that you are on the "14" rather than the "13". confused yet? I am. Maybe it's just the number 13 that is unlucky rather than the physicallity of their being 13 of something. Never mind, I have just dug myself into a whole and have started throwing dirt back on myself.

I also heard that 13 was considered unlucky because it was the number of apostles including Judas.
I've heard this too, but I believe that thirteen is/was also considered unlucky in some nonChristian cultures, such as the Vikings.

To cure a baby with thrush.... A man who has never seen his father before breathes his breath gently into the baby's mouth..
My grandma's dads dad died before he was born, and he was called upon to cure babies with thrush several times.
Superstition or folk remedy?
When kids were sick with a cold, their mothers filled a small pouch with strong smelling dried herbs and hung it around the sick childs neck. This was what grandma called asafoetida bag. She said the bag stank so bad, no one would come close enough to you to catch your cold.
Superstition or good gardening advice?
Grandpa says that if the corn isn't
by 4th of July
it won't be a good crop.
