Fishermen’s Superstitions Never start a voyage on the first Monday in April. This is the day that Cain slew Able. Don’t start a voyage on the second Monday in August. This is the day Sodom & Gomorrah was destroyed. Starting a cruise on Dec. 31 is bad. This is the day Judas Iscariot hanged himself. Black traveling bags are bad luck for a seaman. Black is the color of death and indicative of the depths of the sea. Avoid people with red hair when going to the ship to begin a journey. Red heads bring bad luck to a ship, which can be averted if you speak to the red-head before they speak to you.
