It’s May, which means spring is in full swing.

As you’re listening to the birds singing outside on a cool morning this month, ponder these cool facts about May.

1. According to old superstitions, it’s bad luck to marry, buy a broom or wash a blanket during the month of May.

2. No U.S. president has ever died in May.

3. In a 2004 study of 40,000 English people, those born in May believe they are luckier than people born in any other month.
