Through the years I’ve heard that more is better. Today is PUT A PILLOW ON YOUR FRIDGE DAY!!! This wacky holiday started in Europe and spread to the United States. It seems that putting a pillow on your refrigerator will bring good luck to the household. So if one pillow on the fridge brings good luck, would two pillows double your luck??? Let’s just pile pillows on the fridge and have smooth sailing for the long haul!!! Works for me!!!
Make sure the top of your fridge is clean before you put a pillow on it. Here’s a neat little tip about keeping the top of the fridge clean.
And what sort of pillow do we need to use? Is there more luck stored in a pillow off my bed? Maybe I need to use a pillow from my couch. They are not very specific about the type of pillow, so maybe I should just put one of each.
No one was more superstitious than my dad. I could not let a rocking chair keep rocking when I got up or let a broom fall to the floor. It was awful if a bird happened to get into our house! All of these things meant there would be a death in the family.
A bird never flew into our house – but I did accidentally let a broom fall to the floor once – and wow, did I hear about it! I was a grown woman in my home. My dad was the guest. I was sweeping in the kitchen and my broom fell to the floor. You’d have thought the world was coming to an end. It was an accident – really it was.
Because of my father’s superstitious nature, I’m really not keen on these kinds of things. I just think they are interesting to research and write about. Basically I enjoy poking fun at them.
Does luck exist? Do things take a turn for the better just because we do some of these silly things? I don’t know, but since I am my father’s daughter, I might put a few pillows on my refrigerator today just to be on the safe side!
Well – GOOD LUCK!!! ❤
