What do you think of when you realize it’s Friday the 13th?
Okay, besides that.
You think of luck, right? Friday the 13th is considered, since ancient times, to be unlucky or a bad omen. A combination of being the 6th day of the week and the 13th day of the month are what sets this special date on a crux between horrifying and, well, slightly silly.
Despite evidence that some people do have horrible luck on Friday the 13th (as statistics that point out an increased risk of traffic accidents show) most people agree that the date’s only merit is its widely acclaimed superstitious ties. We all know of some pretty common superstitions, like not walking under ladders or avoiding a black cat that may cross your path, and to most of these, we pay no mind. However, we all have something, a little quirky thing that we believe in- some kind of superstitious belief that we ascribe to, just in case...
