(Un)Fun Fact Friday (the 13th): Bed Superstitions

Whether you’ve noticed it or not, today is Friday the 13th and for the superstitious ones amongst us, this could be perceived as a potentially unlucky day in the calendar. So with this in mind and being that we are specialists within the field of beds, we thought we would dig around the internet and find the most interesting superstitions relating to your bunk.

We start off on the topic of marriage. Apparently, if a single woman sleeps with a piece of wedding cake under her pillow, she will dream of her future husband. Either that or it means that she tends to get very hungry in the middle of the night. At least wedding cake isn’t too messy…might have a few crumbs and it may be a little squashed in the morning. Chocolate fudge cake would be a whole different kettle of fish. Rather than putting cake under the pillow, they should indulge themselves with another, yet less calorific, treat in the form of a squishy Hungarian Goose Down pillow. Less crumbs involved and a better platform for creating wonderful dreams.

Next, we move on to the topic of having a restless night’s sleep. Supposedly, you should never turn your mattress on a Sunday, or change a bed on Friday or you’ll have bad dreams. So best keep those bed sheets on until tomorrow. Also, when you are making your bed, you shouldn’t interrupt your work or you will have a restless night. So if your other half only puts the pillowcases on the pillows but then leaves the rest to you, give them this warning. And to be fair, if they had bed linen from our wonderful collection, they would be happy to get the bed made as soon as possible. This moves nicely on to our final point. It is considered unlucky if more than two people make the bed. So if they start, they better finish it, or I’m sure the bad luck will come in the form of an angry significant other.
