Superstitious Saturday Monday

Superstitious Saturday Monday

It is said that on Monday nights theater ghosts do their own performances. This is probably because there are seldom any scheduled (human) performances on Mondays, since dancers and actors often have that day off. Therefore, the ghosts are free to roam about the premises, doing as they please.

There are many non-theatrical superstitions involving Mondays. For instance, no grave digging on a Monday (1891); or this saying: “work begun on Monday will never be a week old”; and if a store owner extents credit to a customer on Monday, he will be unlucky all week.

On the other hand, in Ireland it is believed that “no great undertaking can be auspiciously commenced in Ireland on any morning but Monday morning.”

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Superstition #164:
“Theater ghosts do their own performances on Monday nights.”
