EUTS: everything under the sun

All Stories Revealed Under The Sun

Friday the 13th

I got this from Wikipedia, information from this belief

A Friday occurring on the 13th day of any month is considered to be a day of bad luck in English, German, Polish and Portuguese-speaking cultures around the globe. Similar superstitions exist in some other traditions. In Greece or Spain, for example, Tuesday the 13th takes the same role. The fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia (a word that is derived from the concatenation of the Greek words Παρασκευή, δεκατρείς, and φοβία, meaning Friday, thirteen, and phobia respectively; alternative spellings include paraskevodekatriaphobia or paraskevidekatriaphobia) or friggatriskaidekaphobia, and is a specialized form of triskaidekaphobia, a phobia (fear) of the number thirteen.

  8. 13 is a good number. Friday is the most awaited day in a week. have them on date is very usual for me. well, maybe it is just a matter of belief, perspective rather to be observe. Nothing bad had happen to me in 13th day of a month that falls on the Friday. I am gladly even to have that day because it will be very unusual for other people. funny it was but they act differently on that date. taking safety measure maybe is the reason. coincidence and maybe destiny.

    and how are those people anyway, they’re just ordinary individuals , i guess. hehehe.

    well, heed for bad luck. if you have it. 😉

    have a gud nyt.
