Are You Superstitious About Friday The 13th?

Youtube

Its Friday…the 13th…EEEEK!  So would you have known that it was Friday the 13th if we hadn’t told you?  Some people say yes!  Some people are so fearful of Friday the 13th, they’ll actually call in sick, and just stay home, praying that something bad doesn’t happen to them.  But why?  Where did all the superstition about Friday the 13th come from?

According to historians, several things add up to bad luck on both Friday and the 13th.  On a Biblical standpoint, it’s been said that Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit on a Friday, and later died on a Friday, the Great Flood was said to have started on a Friday, GOD “babbled” the builders of the Tower of Babel on a Friday, there were 13 at the table at the Last Supper, the 13th just happened to be the traitor himself, Judas, and Friday is the day that Christians consider the crucifixion of JESUS.  

The British Medical Journal did a study on Friday the 13th, to determine if that day is bad for your health.  They were surprised to find out that even though there were less motorists on the road on Friday the 13th, the significant rise in hospital admissions from accidents were much higher on Friday the 13th than any other day of the year!

Other superstitions about Friday and the 13th include sitting at a dinner table with 13 people, they say if you do that, all will die within a year!  Many cities don’t have a 13th Street or Avenue, many buildings don’t have a 13th floor,(although I actually worked on the 13th floor of a building) superstition also says not to change your bed on a Friday or else you’ll have bad dreams, and ships are not to set sail on a Friday for fear of bad luck!

So are you superstitious about Friday the 13th, and has anything bad ever happen to you on this day?
