See what I did there?
It was Friday 13th!
While some people are afraid to go outside on that day I consider Friday 13th my lucky day. I find superstitions unbelievably interesting so logically I love Friday 13th. Also, my mum was born ona a Friday 13th.
For a long time I never really understood why on earth people would consider a random day to be dangerous or unlucky so I did a little research. It seems that people believe that the number 13 is unlucky because it is irregular and destroys the completeness of the number 12 which is considered to be a harmonic and perfect number. Jesus had 12 Apostles, there are 12 months in a year, a clock has 12 numbers.... Do I need to go on? Also, the number 13 is a prime number.
Friday is cosidered unlucky for various reasons as well, the most important one for western culture being the fact that Jesus died on a Friday 13th. Naturally, back in time people would naturally think that a day that has two unlucky things combined- the Friday and the number 13- could only bring evil.
How about you, are you superstitious? Did you have any accidents on a Friday 13th? My day was fabulous, the sun was eve shining.
Have a great day,The Countess
