# 13 Friday 13th
Apparently there is no evidence that Friday 13th is unlucky, at least not until the Victorians added it to their long list of phobias and superstitions. Friday and 13 separately however, have long been associated with bad luck so there’s a fair bet that’s where it all started.
|The other ‘Friday 13th’. Much scarier|
But why are some of us still so superstitious? It’s irrational in a modern age where we know pretty much everything about everything. And yet we still have a fear of this mysterious other world that we can’t quite put out finger on.
Personally, despite being a very superstitious child, I think it’s a load of rubbish. Nothing bad has ever happened to me on Friday 13th.
I’ll let you know at the end of the day if I survived without mishap.
