Happy Friday The 13th Today!

Hey pandas!Happy Friday,the 13th today! Actually-there isn’t anything good at all but I just thought it would be fun to say it… Did you know that actually for many people throughout the world and in my country*Bulgaria*,too lots of people did NOT experience ANY BAD things happening AT ALL? That just might lead us to the conclusion about Friday,the 13th-it is NOT a bad day! Even scientists say it!People just thought for some reasons or another that ”13” is a bad number and especially on ”Friday”,an ordinary day of the week which in fact(sometimes) I like the most!

Let’s just see how it all began and a little history…Shall we? 😀

In the ancient Babylon’s Code of Hammurabi, dating to about 1772 BC, the number 13 is omitted in the list of laws.

There has also been a longstanding myth that if 13 people dine together, one will die within a year. The myth comes from both the Last Supper, when Jesus dined with the 12 Apostles prior to his death, and a popular Norse myth, in which 11 close friends of the god Odin dine together only to have the 12-person party crashed by a 13th person, Loki, the god of evil and turmoil.

In fact, the number 13 has been considered cursed across the world for thousands of years. The number 12 is historically considered the number of completeness, while its older cousin, 13, has been seen as an outlier. There are 12 months of the year, 12 gods of Olympus, 12 hours of the clock, 12 tribes of Israel, 12 Apostles of Jesus, 12 Descendants of Muhammad Imams, among many incidences of the pattern historically.

In 1881, an organization was started called The Thirteen Club in an attempt to improve the number’s reputation. The 13 members walked under ladders and spilled salt at the first meeting in an attempt to dissuade any negative associations with the number.

Despite these efforts, the number 13 continues to have an unlucky association today. Thirteen is so disliked that many cities do not have a 13th Street or a 13th Avenue, many high-rise buildings avoid having a 13thfloor, some hospitals avoid labeling rooms with the number 13 and many airports will not have a gate 13.

Some Facts about Friday the 13th

  • The fear of Friday the 13th is called ”friggatriskaidekaphobia”.
  • The fear of the number 13 is called ”triskaidekaphobia”.
  • Between 17 and 21 million people suffer from the fear of Friday the 13th.
  • Friday the 13th will occure 3 times more this year(2012)- 13th April and 13th July.
  • The Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute in Asheville, North Carolina reports that between 800 and 900 million dollars is lost on Friday the 13th alone because workers will not fly or follow normal routines because of a paralyzing fear of Friday the 13th. But where does this fear come from?
  • Friday was also the day that Jesus was crucified and that the Eve gave Adam the forbidden Apple, according to the Bible.
Some More Interesting Facts About Friday the 13th
  • Many hospitals and hotels do not have a Room number 13.
  • Many cities and towns do not have a 13th street.

  • Both Napoleon Bonaparte and President Herbert Hoover were known to be suffering from ”triskaidekaphobia”.
  • Some believe having 13 people seated at a table – as in the Last Supper – is unlucky. Innumerology, the number 12 is considered the number of completeness, as in 12 months of the year, 12 hours on the clock, 12 Apostles of Jesus, etc.; the number 13 is considered irregular.
  • In Spanish-speaking countries and in Greece, Tuesday the 13th is considered the day of bad luck – not Friday the 13th.

    Hi there! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established website such as yours take a massive amount work?
    I am completely new to running a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily
    basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to
    share my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
    Thankyou!
