Friday The 13th

This is the second Friday the thirteenth this year. The first was in February and will happen again in November. If you are superstitious then you may or may not look forward to the occurrence of Friday being on the 13th of the month. Often considered an unlucky day and is often blamed when bad things happen it is a day where you may want to be on your toes.

Through history the number 13 has been an unlucky number. Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of the number 13. Some have even viewed Friday as an unlucky day of the week. Now in this generation we would not agree with that but rather with TGIF.

However, there are those welcome Friday the 13th and don't agree with the negative superstitions. In fact they think of the number 13 as lucky. However those that were victims in the Friday the 13th movie would have to disagree.

Were you aware that         
there are skyscrapers that are built and do not have a 13th floor
Ship skippers do not go to sea with a crew of 12 as the skipper would make 13.
Ancient Mayans of Central America were the most advance culture in all of Americas and that they considered the number 13 sacred  
In biblical references it is believed that Cain killed Abel on Friday the 13th.
