Black Cats and White Rabbits - Friday the 13th Edition

Fear of the unknown drives us to avoid ladders, carry good luck charms, and knock on random pieces of wood. But why and how did these common beliefs take root? Join us for a dive into the lore of this ancient and esoteric topic.

Rewind to a time when thunder was unexplained, and black cats were feared, to reveal why people around the world, and probably you, still engage in the rituals of superstitions.

We promise, you absolutely will leave with at least one change of perspective.

Event at the Museum of Howard County History, 8328 Court Avenue, Ellicott City, MD 21043.
