Last Friday the 13th was an interesting day, nothing cool nor any interesting happened, but the “Date” itself.
I heard on the news that, August 13, 2010 is the only “Friday the 13th” that will occur this year. Though people, specially the superstitious ones may not prefer that date to celebrate, having custom cake toppers in any celebration would be a lot more fun.
So I thought of checking out how big of a deal is Friday the 13th to other people?, coz the only thing I know bout it is, it’s a title of a horror movie. I learned a lot after researching about it, there were a lot of theories indicated in Wikipedia which rooted from this 2 superstition, having 13 as an unlucky number and Friday as an unlucky day, but what I liked the most is the medical term “friggatriskaidekaphobia” which is “fear of Friday the 13th”. There were even researches in certain countries, where most people with “friggatriskaidekaphobia” prefer to stay indoors whenever it’s Friday the 13th, though this lessens accidents and crimes, it affects businesses a lot coz they don’t get customers :).
