Why Is Friday the 13th Considered Unlucky?
It's a day that we all see on the calendar and get instant heebie-jeebies: Friday the 13th.
So why is Friday the 13th considered unlucky? I did not know the answer to that, so I did what any good millennial would do, I asked Google! According to Wikipedia, the reason Friday the 13th is considered unlucky is actually a biblical reason. According to the post, "originating from the story of Jesus' last supper and crucifixion" in which there were 13 individuals present in the Upper Room on the 13th of Nisan Maundy Thursday, the night before his death on Good Friday." I would never have thought that is this the reason.
The day brings out superstitious people all over the U.S. and according to a new survey, a third of Americans consider themselves superstitious -- that's 1 out of 11 people! This Friday the 13th is extra special, though, because it also comes accompanied with a full moon. And that won't happen again for another 30 years!
I am totally superstitious -- at least I was while playing sports growing up. I wore that same hat to every golf match I played in high school. It was my favorite white Nike hat and I would have sworn that is what made me decent!
What are you superstitious about?
