Friday the 13th

To many people today is a day of bad luck. Researching this topic finds no real clues to why this particular day is considered one of bad luck. There are a lot of theories, Friday was the day Christ was crucified, their were 13 at the Last Supper, etc. and etc. but no one really can point to any one (or two or three) reasons that make the combination of Friday and 13 such bad luck. Most think this is more of a modern invention too, more from after the 20th century than very far back in history.

Except for my car needing a new master cylinder it was a fairly normal day. Thanks for the add.

Regular day for me too.

I always think of the destruction of the Knights Templar, which occurred on a Friday the 13th.
