I found this one particular post I think more knowledgeable so I will reblog (means a blog whose sole purpose is to post about other blogs.) OK or not?

The term is based on the Greek words:
paraskevi - Friday dekatria - thirteen -phobia - indicates fear

The superstition surrounding Friday the 13th is actually a combination of two separate fears — the fear of the number 13, called triskaidekaphobia, and the fear of Fridays.

 It is unlucky to have thirteen at a table or in a company. The number 13, in the Christian faith, is the number of people at the Last Supper, with the 13th guest at the table being the traitor, Judas.

The unlucky number 13 is often left out when numbering houses, flats and hotel rooms.
  • Fridays have been considered an unlucky day since the medieval times.
  • It is generally considered bad luck to start anything on a Friday - a new journey, job, marriage, business project, giving birth, moving house
  • It is unlucky to cut fingernails and hair on a Friday.
  • In Britain, Friday was the conventional day for public hangings, and there were supposedly 13 steps leading up to the noose!
Friday is consider an unlucky day in some religions
  • Muslims tout Friday as the day Allah created Adam
  • Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit on a Friday and later died on a Friday.
  • Christians consider Friday as the day on which Christ was crucified by the Romans.

See and read from the original post entry of Mandy Barrow.

And for my own theory, there is no such proven things when it comes to superstition yet they said you lose nothing if you believe. Agree or what? Just be all POSITIVE and it's proven that things will come rightly more than you expect.

Happy Friday the 13th!!
