As we close the door on 2022, we can often lose ourselves in all the traditions and superstitions that come with welcoming another year.
Now, that's not to say I'm a superstitious guy. Well, most of the time I'm not. But black cats still keep me on edge. And you won't find me walking under any ladders. Just in case.
But today, I learned of a couple new superstitions. They both involve laundry.
Anyone who knows me knows that I despise laundry. So any chance I can get to avoid it, I'll take it. Or in this case, I get two chances and I'll take 'em!
My friends at SaltyLama say:
If you do laundry on New Year’s Day, a family member will be washed away — in other words, die — within the next 12 months.
Don’t wash your clothes on New Year's Day, or you will see all your luck and prosperity go down the drain during the year.
That's enough for me to not wanna do laundry all year. But that's gross. And unrealistic.
So while I won't be washing, drying, and folding any laundry on New Year's Day, in 2023, my family, friends, and I will be turning over a new leaf in the laundry department.
