Taryn's Wreckreation Guide: National Open An Umbrella INDOORS Day?!

March 13, 2017

POWERED BY VISIT BEND

I have a few superstitions that are pretty critical to adhere to... You can't tell someone your dream first thing in the morning unless you've both had something to eat. If you are walking with a friend and a post comes between you, you must both say "Bread and butter!" Don't walk under a ladder. And of course, do NOT open an umbrella indoors. Except for today...

 

Being from the Seattle area, I don't even own an umbrella because I truly believe umbrellas are for wimps, so I'm not prepared to participate. But that being said, March 13th is National Open An Umbrella Indoors Day, which goes completely against the age-old superstition discourgaging this practice. The superstition dates back to the ancient Egyptians, who believed it would offend the gods to open an umbrella if there was already shade in that space. The version of the superstition we observe in modern times threatens a slew of bad luck. 

 

But today is the day you are supposed to open an umbrella indoors, and then note if you have any bad luck. A test, if you will. And it's all over social media, using the hashtag #OpenAnUmbrellaIndoorsDay. Here are a couple of them: 

Happy #openanumbrellaindoorsday ! We opened the Gold Floral Ornament #labellaumbrella - so far, only good luck here! Are you opening a dark and gloomy umbrella today? It's good luck to get a new one!
