Does anyone know why Friday the 13th is considered a “bad day”?
Well several theories have been proposed about the origin of Friday the 13th superstition:
- One theory states that it is a mix between two older superstitions: that 13 is an unlucky number and that Friday is an unlucky day!
- There is also a superstition, thought by some that is derived from the Last Supper: That having thirteen people seated at a table will result in the death of one of the diners!!!
- Friday has been considered an unlucky day since the 14th century’s and many professionals have regarded Friday as an unlucky day to undertake journeys or begin new projects or jobs.
- Black Friday has been associated with stock market crashes and other disasters since the 1800s.
