Many people think that Friday the 13th is an unlucky day. Is it true or just a puff?
Do you believe that Friday the 13th is an unlucky day? What if it you were born or one of your loved one was born on that day, would you consider it unlucky?
Where does this thinking came from?
Since many people think about this dreaded day, it makes sense that we know where and how does such thinking came from. Regardless of what you believe, the number 13 and Friday were considered unlucky in their own right.
Jesus Christ was crucified on Friday and it is also deemed to be the day of abstinence and penance. This religious belief had created a general dislike or notion of not doing anything important during Friday. Likewise, number 13 was associated with the number of people gathered during the Last Supper of Jesus Christ and the number of witches making a coven.
Some historians also believed that it was Friday when the Eve disobeyed God the Father and bit the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge. It was also Friday when the great flood began.
As written in the novel Da Vinci Code, it was Friday the 13th when the Templar Grand Master Jacques de Molay was executed in the 14th century. He cursed the King of France and the Pope that spread misfortune down the ages.
According to one of the Professors of University of Edinburgh, Dr. Caroline Watt, it is the belief of many people about the Friday the 13th superstition that could put the greatest risk to their lives. Since they believe about the superstition, most likely they also believe that their lives are in greater danger during that day. Hence, they pull negative vibes.
Being too distracted and anxious about Friday the 13th could lead to accidents and became a self-fulfilling prophecy. Friday the 13th creates a paranoia, whether it is true or not depends on how a person believes on it.
