I've gotten my MP3 , my DS Lite and various DS games, as well as my PSP stolen within the span of my entire high school years... But this? Just wow...that just sucks...I hate it when stuff like that happens.
I know what you mean, I'm not into superstitions either, but this years alredy on a bad start with me. Maybe not to the degree of you, but still. You see every year my parents would let me stay up to watch the countdown to the new year, but now that I'm in college I'm already allowed to stay up as late as I want and like an idiot was to busy playing video games to relize the time and missed the countdown. Now it seems I have to wait forever for even the smallest thing. Examples: 30 min. for a McDonald's employee to answer a simple question about the happy meal toys, 6 weeks to even try to order a anime series, and since the new year started no new TMNT episodes on Nickelodeon. But again sorry for your loss, just know that the curse of 2013 doesn't just haunt you.
actually, the supperstition is about, money and love, if you use yellow ones money will not be a problem, if the red ones are used a you will find love, there is also other newyear's suppestitions, like eating 12 grapes in exchange of 12 wishes and running around the neighborhood with a suitcase to travel a lot
I never knew about this superstition! Daaamn, what a great way to start off the new year, some low-life basically destroying your car and stealing your property! But karma's a real bitch, so whoever did this is getting what's coming to em'. Big time.
The worse thing you could possibly do now is say/think "IT CAN'T GET ANY WORSE THAN THIS."
Because after you say that, some unknown entity that loves to mess with everyone will take that as a challenge to make it even worse. I'm a pessimist and a skeptic, but this has happened a lot of times.
The only superstition I have is with crows. If one's around and it just happens to die, death is near! Other than that, I believe no such things of luck and bad luck. Remember dude, you make your own luck
