How the superstition was created that Friday the 13th is a bad day and how to spend it without stress
Today is Friday and the 13th. Many can tell us that this is a bad day, a very old superstition that has been reinforced even by contemporary movies and novels, especially those of the thriller and horror genre. But how did this idea come about that Friday and the 13th when combined are bad luck?
This superstition has its origins in the Last Supper, where Christ sat down with his 12 apostles on Passover Friday, before Judas Iscariot betrayed him. In Christian culture, this superstition has been reinforced by other events throughout history. On Friday, October 13, 1307, King Philip IV of France arrested hundreds of crusaders in his kingdom, and since then the notion that this date meant bad things has been reinforced in the minds of the masses.
There are many superstitious people who live in fear this day. 80% of buildings in the US do not have floor 13, or apartment number 13. Hotel rooms and flight seats, too.
How to pass it without fear?
Do not watch any movie related to this date today. Dil. Meet friends. Listen to music. After all it remains Friday weekends, how bad can it be?
