Venerdì 17


Oggi è Venerdì 17 !!!! Today Friday the 17th !!!! the most unlucky day !!!! . A Friday occurring on the 17th day of any month is considered , here in Italy, to be a day of bad luck . Similar superstitions exist in other traditions but with friday the 13th. So the solution against bad luck is the RED HORN and here a picture of many red (and golden) horns shotted in the center of Rome close to a newspaper shop.
Touch the red horn and the bad luck will go away !!!! P.S. Sorry 4 yesterday no image but I needed 1 day 2 regenerate after the alcool of S. Faustine party!!!

This is interesting Joe, but why a red horn? Whats the story behind it? And there are golden horns here too...do they take away bad luck too?

They look like chili peppers.

Do you know why the 17th is unlucky instead of the 13th?

Funny I never heard about this Friday 17th bad luck thing. How can France and Italy have such a close culture and not share the same (un)lucky charms?!

Nice shot. Curious the Friday 17th. In the UK and US its Friday 13th and Spain its Tuesday 13th.

At last I understand the object used by the "husband" in the original French version of the film La Cage aux Folles.
