Friday the 13th

Nov 13, 2015

Wooooo… Friday the 13th is here! Call in sick, lock the doors, rent some funny movies and don’t do anything all day cause this is the creepiest day and why even bother taking any chances. Friday the 13th happens at least once a year, and there is a strong superstition that this day is a day of bad luck for everyone.

Logic or Luck

OK but maybe you are a completely logical person and you’ve realized that bad luck is a bunch of baloney. People who believe Friday the 13th has evil superstitions have a sickness or a phobia called friggatriskaidekaphobia and it is because they are scared of the number 13. What the heck is wrong with 13 anyways?

Unlucky List

Canterbury Tales were told 100s of years agoCanterbury Tales were told 100s of years ago

It’s kind of funny how 13 became an unlucky number, but this will help explain why Friday the 13th became known as the “unlucky” day:

  • The number 12 completes everything like months of the year and hours of the clock so everyone got mad at 13 because it’s the first number outside of the box of completeness.
  • In some stories called “The Canterbury Tales”, the English made Friday an unlucky day by writing some scary stories about bad things that happen on Friday.
  • The biggest reason why Friday has such a bad wrap is because according to the Christian scripture, Jesus was crucified on a Friday.
