Friday the 13th



Friday the 13th

So we're back to that day that tends to bring bad luck to everyone. Friday the 13th. There are actually 3 Friday the 13th this year. 
So why is it that Friday the thirteen is seen as being so unlucky that there has even been a franchise named after it?
Well if nothing bad has happened during the week it is seen usually that it will occur on Friday, as everyone is running round trying to finish before the weekend begins. 
Thirteen is seen as being unlucky for certain reasons. Most things stop at 12 such as the month and the times tables we are made to learn. So it no surprise we see it as unlucky, but odd numbers in general can be said to be less lucky than even numbers as they have this odd sense of irregularity as it is hard to divide and seems unconventional.
So the seemingly unlucky day is just unconventional to us in more ways than one but is it actually unlucky?
Well each person has their own views and no matter what we can all say that their is a justified reason for our illogical fear of this one date.
