Why Friday a 13th Is Considered to Be Bad Luck

Why is Friday a 13th deliberate to be so unlucky? It’s partial math, partial history, and partial cocktail culture.

Westerners have always had an emanate with a series 13, regardless of what day of a week it is. There’s even a systematic name for a fear of a number: triskaidekaphobia. Experts like Thomas Fernsler, a scientist during a University of Delaware, advise this contempt for a series is given it’s positioned after 12, that is deliberate to be a “complete” series by numerologists. Think about it—there are 12 months, 12 zodiac signs, 12 gods of Olympus, 12 apostles of Jesus… a list goes on and on, and 13 is usually divisible by one and itself. The series 13 is only over that ideal 12 and it creates people feel uneasy.


Another expected source of a damned is Christianity during a Middle Ages. Stuart Vyse, a highbrow of psychology during Connecticut College, says Judas, a apostle who tricked Jesus, is to blame. He was a 13th guest during a Last Supper, and Jesus’s crucifixion afterwards took place on a Friday (also famous as “hangman’s day”). As Vyse puts it, it was all a “sort of double whammy of 13 descending on an already shaken day.” Other biblical scholars indicate out that Eve presumably tempted Adam on a Friday, and that Cain killed his hermit Able on Friday a 13th. Also, Philip IV of France presumably arrested hundreds of a Knights Templar on Friday a 13 of Oct 1307, perpetuating a day as a dim day.

Last though not least, Friday a 13th played a vital purpose in Norse mythology. Folklore historian Donald Dossey explains an aged story where 12 gods were carrying a cooking celebration in Valhalla when who walks in as a 13th guest? None other than Loki, a God of effect himself. He arranges for a blind God Hoder to fire and kill Balder, a God of fun and gladness, creation it a bad, detrimental day for all.


Of course, we also have several other works to appreciate for popularizing a ancient superstition. Thomas W. Lawson’s novel Friday, a Thirteenth helped move a damned to light once again in 1907. And a Friday a 13th fear film franchise—originally patrician A Long Night during Camp Blood—has kept those scary difference in a forefront of a minds given a 80s. Chhh chhh chhh ahhh ahhh ahhhh.
