It it just superstition?


I’ve always been told that you must never wash clothes on New Years Day as you will wash someone from your family.
I don’t know where this came from but I know when I moved to Birmingham no-one seemed to have heard of it.
Is this just a Leicester superstition or is it actually just a family superstition?
I know one thing though I DO NOT intend to do any washing on 
Jan 1st!
My machine is on now & no more will be done until at least the 2nd Jan.

Another along the same lines is you are not supposed to clean your windows for the same reason, but i’m not sure if this is my own invention to avoid cleaning them or is actually from the past! I’ll stay away from any sort of cleaning apart from personal hygiene cleaning just to be on the safe side as i’m very attached tot he family i’ve got & would like to keep them with me for a s long as I can!

So as we say goodbye to 2011 & hello to 2012 I will be safe in the knowledge I have not broken the superstition’s in any shape or form!

Do you know of any that have been handed down through the generations? If so please comment below as i’d love to hear from you.
