        Well today is Friday the 13th and there are loads of superstitions surrounding Friday the 13th which are a combination of two separate fears:

            the fear of the number 13 (called triskaidekaphobia)
            the fear of Fridays

        Unlucky 13

        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.

        Why are people superstitious of the number 13?

            A witches coven consists of 13 members.
            Tarot Card number 13 is the Death Card, depicting the Grim Reaper
            Hotels rarely have a room number 13
            There are 13 steps leading to the gallows.
            13 knots in a hangman's noose.
            13 feet which the guillotine blade falls.
            The driver of Princess Diana hit pillar 13 at Place de l'Alma, Paris, France which unfortunately resulted in her death.

        Fridays

            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!

        Info sourced from Project Britain.

        I have to say that I personally don't like Friday the 13th, I do take extra care if I'm driving or doing anything that could cause me to be harmed.

        Are you superstitious of this day?

        It makes me a little nervous I must admit. My future mother in law has been with her bf for a year as of today. It's all she has talked about. 

        She tends to repeat things incessantly so I'm sure I'll relive this day for the next 6 months

        What a brilliant saying that is - it really made me howl.  Thank you Chilly for brightening the day.
