January 13, 2012 -> Friday the 13th
Friday the 13th occurs when the thirteenth day of a month falls on a Friday, which superstition holds to be a day of bad luck. Why? According to biblical sources, Friday was the day on which Eve offered Adam the forbidden fruit and Jesus was crucified. Judas, the apostle who betrayed Jesus, was the 13th guest to the Last Supper.
Another popular theory links the superstition to the demise of the Knights Templar, a monastic military order whose members were arrested en masse by France’s King Philip IV on Friday, October 13, 1307.
I don’t really believe in any of these… Friday the 13th is just any other day. If you think any day is unlucky, then it will be UNLUCKY. But if you think that any day or even Friday the 13th is a LUCKY day, then it will be. No one really knows what will happen in the future, so make everyday a LUCKY DAY.
Tomorrow is Friday the 13th and its my last day at work. 🙂 Do you think it’s unlucky? I don’t think so!
By the way, did you know that the fear of Friday the 13th is called “friggatriskaidekaphobia”???
