A list showing the unlucky years. If you are male and are 42, 25 or 61, you are going to be hounded by evil spirits and bad luck.
If you are a woman and are 37, 33, 19 or 61, you will also be followed by evil and bad luck.
But luckily, the shrine sells items which will protect you from these spirits in the form of parchments.
The parchments needs to be blessed however and if you purchase some at midnight then you need to go back the next day to collect them.
