Why Friday The 13th Is Considered Unlucky

Paramount Pictures

The myth has always been there. Uh oh, it’s Friday the 13th! It’s going to be an unlucky one. But why? Is it a day of breaking mirrors by accident, black cats crossing your path, and a walking under a ladder kind of day?

According to Live Science, it may trace all the way back to Biblical times, when the 13th guest, Judas, at the Last Supper betrayed Jesus and caused his Crucifixion, which was held on a Friday.

In the late Middle Ages, both Friday and the number 13 were considered bearers of misfortune. For whatever reason, a lot of us get superstitious when Friday the 13th rolls around. I think you’ll be just fine unless someone in a hockey mask named Jason hunts you down with a machete and kills you.

Have a great weekend!
