Hip hip hooray for National Open an Umbrella Indoors Day...because you can stand under my umbrella, ella, ella,eh, eh, eh under my umbrella...
Sing along with Rihanna about umbrellas today because this holiday is dedicated to everything umbrella-ish!
Weird to celebrate a holiday that's supposed to bring bad luck right? Here's a rundown of just some of the superstitions out there about opening up an umbrella indoors. Apparently, if a woman drops her umbrella, she can be sure that she won't ever marry! What a shame, isn't it? That's the worst reason, but there are tons of others. Opening up an umbrella indoors is said to be an insult to the sun god, Ra. Placing an umbrella on a bed is bad luck too.
Maybe you think now that this is a holiday that is pointless to celebrate if it is gonna bring bad luck. But what ever happened to making the best out of a situation. Be positive, and open an umbrella indoors anyway. Want a true umbrella experience? Stand in the shower and open your umbrella to simulate standing out in the rain. Hey, just a suggestion!
