Friday has been considered as an unlucky day, as well as number 13 as an unluckiest number. This superstition believed to be traced back and related to the story of 'Knights Templar' which I found in Wikipedia as follows:
The Knights Templar were a monastic military order founded in Jerusalem in 1118 C.E., whose mission was to protect Christian pilgrims during the Crusades. Over the next two centuries, the Knights Templar became extraordinarily powerful and wealthy. Threatened by that power and eager to acquire their wealth, King Philip secretly ordered the mass arrest of all the Knights Templar in France on Friday, October 13, 1307 - Friday the 13th.
Some other stories related to the 'unlucky Friday' are about Black Friday (the day when the stock market crashed and collapsed) and JESUS was crucified on Friday.
I found this special promo by a famous online store in Australia, oo.com.au, which challenge people to be a lucky winner of 'Lucky Friday'
So which one you believe in 'Friday the 13th' ? unlucky or lucky day? what you gonna do tonight? me... might be watching some Japanese horror movies.. ho..ho...
Happy Friday the 13th guys.... :-)
