Default Friday 13th today! Is anyone superstitious here?

Well, today is Friday the 13th!

What do you all think when it comes this day?

Well as for me, I don't want to think negative today... as tomorrow will be a beautiful day for me... I don't want to be spoilt with today's bad luck...

THINK POSITIVE, MATES!!!! [img]graemlins/thumbsup2.gif[/img]

I am not superstitous at all. Friday the 13th has always been a good day for me. I love and have had many black cats, and I always walk under ladders because no one else is there. I also pick up pennies no matter what side is up, hey money is money!

Everyone have a great day!!

I'm not too superstitous either. I do a whole bunch of things that superstitous peope would probably cringe at, but hey, I'm still walking.

Although, on that note, just watch today as a piano falls on my head or something. [img]graemlins/tongue1.gif[/img]

I'm not really superstitious either - in fact, I've always kind of liked Friday the 13th. Maybe I'm just backwards. (HO HO HO) [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

I'm aware of it and I can't really say if I'm superstitious about today but I've had Friday the 13ths that have been lucky for me. But, to be sure, I'll steer clear from from guys named Jason. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Default Re: Friday 13th today! Is anyone superstitious here?

I found this amusing blurb and thought I'd share it with you all.

Triskaidekaphobia
The "fear of the number 13," and today is Friday the 13th. Are you aware of the superstitions surrounding both the number 13 and Fridays in general?

In ancient times, Friday was the day of the pagan goddess Freya, and 13 was her sacred number, because the pagan calendar had 13 months. Christian monks considered anything having to do with goddesses to be unlucky, and anything having to do with pagans as being evil. When pagans worshipped Freya on Friday the 13th, the monks accused them of "devil worship."

For some, the number 13 is also considered to be unlucky because Jesus Christ was the 13th guest - in addition to his 12 Apostles - at the Last Supper, which took place the night before he was crucified - on a Friday.

The Bible points to Friday as being the day Eve gave Adam the apple.

Ancient Norsemen used 13 knots in the nooses they used to hang people.

In the 19th century, Lloyd's of London refused to insure any ship sailing on Friday the 13th. The U.S. Navy still won't launch ships on that date.

Hotels and office buildings often don't have a 13th floor. Rumor has it there's an organization in France that exists solely to provide last minute dinner guests, so there'll never be 13 people at a table.

The ill-fated Apollo 13 mission was launched at 13:13 military time, from launch pad #39 (that's 13 X 3), and had to be aborted on April 13, 1970.

**Gee..I hope this doesn't add fuel to the fire. [img]graemlins/lookaround.gif[/img]

Very interesting Magill! I've never been superstitious, but I suppose with info like that I could see why some people are.
