So, we were sat in the office today thinking how odd it was that we had no weddings booked for today – the only Friday in the entire wedding season without a wedding….when some bright spark said “Well who would want to get married on Friday 13th?” Good point…….but that got us thinking about the bad luck and good luck superstitions that are associated with weddings.
Did you know for example finding a spider in your wedding dress is very good luck – so too is rain on your special day!
Wilson the classic VW campervan was at a wedding a few months ago with a chimney sweep….meant to be a sign of good fortune at the start of your marriage – why? Well, over 200 years ago a London chimney sweeper saved the life of King George III, the king then proclaimed all sweeps were good luck bearers – to ensure a long happy marriage a kiss from a chimney sweep on your wedding day is still believed to be the ultimate good luck.
As for the horseshoe that appears so often on a wedding day – well, it’s fair to say it is a symbol of luck – the origins of which are a little unsavoury, so for now just keep carrying those horseshoes, but don’t concern yourself too much with why!
BUT – stop press – the funniest superstition we found was “Having a cat eat out of your left shoe one week before the wedding is good luck” – oh, please let us know if you ever try this one out!!!
Basil, Morris and Wilson, a selection of our split screen campers are all out tomorrow….finger crossed we meet a chimney sweep!
