Knibb apparently hoped to oppose ridiculous superstitions by encouraging folks to open their umbrellas indoors and note the (non-existent) consequences.

Action 1: Discover an umbrella and check that you are, undoubtedly, indoors. Action 2: Position yourself clear of breakable objects and/or individuals that value their vision. Step 3: Take a deep breath, comprehend the umbrella take care of strongly with one hand and open the umbrella with your other hand. Action 4: Keep in mind any type of bad luck that takes place in the following days or weeks.

Note: Folks which take part in this holiday doing this at their very own threat.
