    Ahhh yes, The Superstition of Friday the 13th, that credulous belief or notion, not based on reason, knowledge, or experience ?
    Or is it ?
    If one looks back in history you may see some grave events that happened on friday the 13th,
    And if you look on the calendar you will see Friday the 13th occurs at least once every year, and the most times in a year it occurs is 3 times, Hmmmm '1' and '3', '13'.

    In most cultures of the world the number thirteen is an unlucky number and Friday is an unlucky day.

    In numerology, the number twelve is considered the number of completeness, as reflected in the twelve months of the year, twelve signs of the zodiac, twelve hours of the clock, twelve tribes of Israel, twelve Apostles of Jesus, twelve gods of Olympus, etc., whereas the number thirteen was considered irregular, odd, most different.

    Friday has always been an unlucky day to undertake journeys or begin new projects, because according to Christian scripture and tradition, Jesus was crucified on a Friday the 13th.

    According to Norse mythology the day of Friday the 13th was when the spiteful goddess convened a meeting with eleven other witches, plus the devil - a gathering of thirteen - and plotted ill turns of fate for the coming week. For many centuries in Scandinavia, Friday w...

    October 13, 1307 - Friday the 13th, was the day King Philip secretly ordered the mass arrest, and death of all the Knights Templar in France.

    And TODAY, The 2009 film "2012" about the END OF THE WORLD, is to be released on Friday November 13 2009.

    King Aurthor was betrayed and murdered on Friday the 13th. It was a horribly unlucky day for people, so they knighted the day an unlucky day. likewise, knighting the number 13 an unlucky number.

    But that's only a thought. I'm not sure if King Author was killed Friday 13th cuz I read it in a book, "Revenge of the Shadow King." and they have this short little thingie where the smart girl is reading from a big book about King Author and the Knights Templar and it said that King Author was killed on Friday 13th and people made it an unluckly day. But I'm not sure is true, because that book is fiction.

    I do think though that people are so worried about trying not to make something go wrong that they subconsciously get that something to happen.

    I don't believe in it... but today... I changed my mind
    My friend Morgan is so popular. She told her crush she liked him, and comes to find out so does he. Her life is great right now. Not until today...

    At lunch, my friend Reja had a bottle of juice or something like that. Morgan had just recently bought a jacket that was like $180.00 and also got a pair of $150.00 UGGS. I opened the juice for Reja and she grabbed it and went to drink it. My crush (why him) walked by and hit Reja. The juice from the bottle landed all over Morgan's jacket and on her light tan UGGS. She was so upset and started crying. Later on that day...

    Her crush/boyfriend, Johnny, had partnered up with her in Science class. She was excited and so was he. They went into their group, got there supplies, and sat down. Technically... they are dating and they love each other. They kissed once... at recess... the day I wasn't there (go figure... haha). Johnny had to go to the "bathroom" and said to Morgan where he was going. Like about 10 minutes later... Morgan was worrying where he was (she worries about everything). She went out into the hallway and Johnny was with another girl and they were practically making out. Morgan started running toward them and she tripped on a crack in the floor and landed in a bucket o...

Morgan started running toward them and she tripped on a crack in the floor and landed in a bucket of water that the janitor just cleaned up with from the boys bathroom. Morgan was once again crying.

    For some reason... this made me superstitious that you can have bad luck on Friday.

    OMG....I feel so sorry for Morgan!! Johnny is a douche bag...The girl he was with is a slut [[I'm sorry i think that about all cheaters and the person the were with lol]] Did she break up with Johnny? Did he at least help her up? I mean sheesh.

    Yes he is! A very short one too! haha
    She didn't break up with Johnny
    He felt bad and said his apologizes. He melted her heart (in a good way)
    He helped her... in fact he dropped the other girl and she fell on the ground and helped up Morgan
    So... they are together now!

    Because they want a reason to make their day seem more exciting and interesting. :P
    I try to think of it as a lucky day. Because bad things happen to people on friday the 13th, because they expect them to happen. So if I expect it to be a good day, it should be one. :P Today was no different to any other day though... Except that it was friday, which I always like more than others, but I guess that doesn't count... o.o
    My mum thinks that saturday the 14th is unlucky. :P
