    Was going to get a haircut today but my wife say's no it is bad luck on Wednesday, oh shite I thought that was Thursday, when I asked her why this is she said just don't do it you have bad luck, so I asked my father in law thinking he would know the reason, he just told me "not good day", seems like many Thai's think Wednesday is bad luck for a haircut but they are not sure why, it's just something you don't do. superstitions passed from generation to generation.

    Correct. Bad luck to have your hair cut on a Wednesday.

    And Thursday is a very bad day for cremations!

    I am told that some do. I've never checked because it's bad luck to have your hair cut on a Wednesday. Hairdressers apparently are open (according to my wife) for hair colouring, perming and the other stuff wimmin do with their hair.

    Thought cremations was bad on a Friday. Local wats do not do on Fridays. If you are dead, what more bad luck can you have?

    Load of Bollocks - all of it - haircuts whatever!

    I was told that Wednesday is the King's haircut day.

    As good a day as any I suppose.
