It’s Friday the 13th, Do You Know Where Your Serial Killer is?

13th3With Friday the 13th and St. Patrick’s Day so close this year, will bad luck rub off or will the luck of the Irish prevail? Maybe a cage match between Jason Voorhees and a Leprechaun and may the best, er, whatever they are, win.

Are you among the millions who believe Friday the 13th is bad luck?

Are you especially careful on this day? Statistically, there are actually fewer accidents and injuries on Friday the 13th, most likely because people are more cautious.

  • Do you have any superstitions?

  • Do you carry a good luck charm or talisman?

  • Believe in signs?

  • Omens?

  • Portents?13th1

  • Do you wear a special outfit for a job interview or date?

  • Have a lucky symbol or charm with you when taking a test?

  • Not shower before the big game?

  • Bring a troll (hopefully just a toy one) with you to bingo?

  • Don’t trust black cats?

  • Never walk under a ladder?

  • Throw salt over your left shoulder if you spill salt?

  • Freak out if you break a mirror?

I can’t think of any of that I believe in, then again, I don’t really believe in luck either. I don’t think there’s anything particularly wrong in believing, unless it controls you.13th5

Why is Friday the 13th considered unlucky? Theories abound.

  • The combination of 13 being considered an unlucky number and Friday an unlucky day.

  • Books, movies, urban legends, numerology, deaths, etc. about it.

  • People coping with grief or trauma often try to find something to blame, perhaps superstitions seemed an easy scapegoat.

  • Humans always want an explanation or excuse.

Strange thing is, most countries and cultures don’t actually consider Friday the 13th unlucky…

Dear readers, do you do anything different on Friday the 13th?

I could suggest the new Friday the 13th movie released today,
I think it’s called:

Friday the 13th Part XXXV:
Jason Kills Again at his Seniors Assisted Living Home

13th10

Good luck…we’re all counting on you.

  1. I’m very superstitious but not particularly about Friday the 13th. I won’t leave the house until I read my horoscope although it’s always wrong. Crazy I know but what the hay!

  2. I’m not superstitious at all. More or less. I do have a thing about magpies and always count them, saying the rhyme when only one is about.
    I thought that the origins of Friday 13th being unlucky was rooted in The Last Supper – 13 gathered on the Thursday, followed by Good Friday, the crucifixion. Why you’re not supposed to have 13 to dinner and so on..
    One other kinda mental one I do have and can’t help myself is never taking anything out of the microwave when the digits display 13! So not superstitious at all you see! 😀

  3. I’m not sure how it came about, but 13 has always been my favorite number. So on Friday the 13th, it’s business as usual around here. Unless I’m watching the movie — then I’m hiding under a blanket. 🙂
