Today is Friday and the 13th of the month. Normally, some people would think that if its Friday the 13th they would say an unluckiest day, a jinx or it brings bad luck. It is considered the unluckiest day because of its close connection to the number “13”, another known symbol of bad luck. Friday the 13th is sometimes feared due to its consistent chain of unfortunate events throughout history.
But have you ever wondered what is the story behind the Friday the 13th? Actually there is no historic reason behind it. Friday the 13th received its bad reputation during Medieval times. It was a Friday the 13th when the Knights Templar were accused of witchcraft and executed. Others believe, Jesus was crucified on a Friday and there were 13 guys at the last supper, and yet another one that says it’s got something to do with lunar cycles and astrology, etc. Some people made up connections to the Friday the 13, to an American-Canadian horror television series. For some people they are just trying to find something or anything to explain it. Its like a superstition and that its better to be cautious during that day.
Some believe it while others do not but nevertheless, just like any date on the calendar, fate and happiness resolves to your own decision-making. How you’ll treat this Friday is entirely up to you. Happy Friday the 13th!
