In this blog post, we will explore the history behind why December 31 is often seen as an unlucky day and what you can do to ensure you have a successful start in the New Year despite it.

What makes December 31 an unlucky day?

There are many theories about why December 31 is considered an unlucky day, but the most common one is that it marks the end of the year.

Another theory is that December 31 is unlucky because it’s the last day of the month. This means that it’s a day when people are running out of money and may not be able to pay their bills. This can also be a very stressful time for people.

Whatever the reason, December 31 is definitely a day that many people consider to be unlucky. So if you’re planning on doing anything important on this day, you may want to reconsider!

The origin of the superstition

There are many superstitions surrounding the date of December 31st, most of which originated in medieval Europe. One popular belief was that it was an unlucky day to begin any new venture, as it was the day on which the original sin was committed. This led to a general avoidance of anything new being started on this date.

Other superstitions claimed that bad things always happened in threes, so December 31st was seen as a particularly unlucky day. This is likely due to the fact that there are only 12 days between December 31st and Christmas Day, making it an easy target for negative events. One of the most persistent superstitions is that Friday the 31st is an unlucky day.

So, why is December 31st considered such an unlucky day? There are a variety of reasons, all of which have their roots in medieval European beliefs and superstitions. Whether you believe in them or not, it’s always best to err on the side of caution and avoid taking any unnecessary risks on this potentially fateful day.

Ways to avoid bad luck on December 31

There are a few things you can do to avoid bad luck on December 31. First, don’t stay up too late on New Year’s Eve. It’s tempting to stay up until midnight to ring in the new year, but this can actually lead to bad luck. Instead, try going to bed at a reasonable hour and setting your alarm for midnight so you can still enjoy the festivities without staying up too late.

Second, don’t wear black on New Year’s Eve. Black is considered a unlucky color in many cultures, so it’s best to avoid it if you want to start the new year off on the right foot. Instead, opt for lucky colors like gold or red.

Third, don’t eat anything sharp on New Year’s Eve. Knives and other sharp objects are considered bad luck on this holiday, so it’s best to play it safe and avoid them altogether. Try eating something soft instead, like pasta or rice.

Fourth, don’t open any doors or windows at midnight. letting in the cold air is said to be unlucky and can bring bad fortune in the new year. So make sure all your doors and windows are shut tight before midnight strikes.

By following these simple tips, you can avoid bad luck this New Year’s Eve and start the new year off on the right foot!


Overall, it is best to remain aware of the superstitious associations with December 31 and be cautious. Though this day may bring its share of bad luck, you can always find ways to make your own luck. This could include taking extra safety measures or simply avoiding any action that makes you feel uneasy about potential consequences. No matter how you decide to approach December 31, remember that ultimately it’s up to us as individuals on how our day plays out.
