Get to Know Halo: Our Superstitions

Get to Know Halo: Our Superstitions

Beware of black cats, stepping on cracks, and walking under a ladder today – it’s Friday the 13th.

Even if you don’t consider yourself a superstitious person, you probably have some kind of ritual you do regularly to guarantee luck or prevent something bad from happening. We definitely do!

Here are some of our superstitions.

Don’t leave your hat on a bed

The one superstition I still hold on to is not putting or leaving a hat on a bed. My grandmother was the one that told me that doing so was bad luck for the next year. In hindsight I now think she made it up to keep me from leaving my things lying on the bed. Of course, as a parent I now use it for the same reason. -Bill B., Account Manager

A little stitious

“I’m not superstitious, but I am a little stitious.” (Michael Scott) -Steven S., Marketing and Media Researcher

“Break a leg”

When I was participating in theater productions I would always say “break a leg” to my fellow cast members before a show. It is also considered bad luck to mention a certain Scottish play that starts with the letter M during a show’s rehearsals and showtimes. On Friday the 13th I used to hug my black cat since I wanted to rebel against the common superstition behind black cats’ bad luck. -Shira L., Proofreader

Never let your wallet or purse lay on the floor

You’re cursing your financial well-being … at least that’s what mom said. -Mauricio V., Global Market Development Specialist

Sporting rituals

I am superstitious about sporting rituals. When I played football in high school I would eat the same thing every week that I was able too. I would also wear some of the same gear for consecutive wins, etc. During the Cowboys vs Lions playoff game a couple years ago, the Cowboys were losing and as a joke I started reading Terrell Owens “fun facts.” The tide of the game changed very quickly and for three quarters I gave different stats and fun facts about Terrell Owens. The Cowboys would win that game…. -Nolan C., Territory Sales Representative

The month of February

Bad things just seem to happen in that month, so I dread it every year. I stress the whole way through it and breathe a sigh of relief once March 1 arrives. Luckily, it’s the shortest month of the year. -Jessica W., Director of Communications & Media

Friday the 13th

The first (and only) time I ran out of gas was on a Friday the 13th. Ever since then, I always make sure my gas tank is full on that day. I don’t want a repeat of jaywalking across a busy street to a gas station in my bath robe and slippers. -Christie E., Communications Specialist
