Paraskevidekatriaphobia
Friday the Thirteenth - The Scandinavians believed that the number 13 was unlucky due to the mythological 12 demigods being joined by a 13th, an evil one, who brought misfortune upon humans. It was also said that Christ was crucified on Friday and the number of guests at the party of the Last Supper was 13, with the 13th guest being Judas, the traitor. Tradition also has it that the Flood in the Bible and the confusion at the Tower of Babel took place on Friday. Apparently Christians hate Fridays.

PS: Brokeback Mountain is sensational, beguiling, stupendous and many other synonyms for "fantastic."
Jake Gyllenhaal is the coolest (If we ignore Bubble Boy), though I've been saying that since I saw Donnie Darko.

However, today sucks. Unless it turns out to be a *very* lucky day.

(My best friend, ladymeshel, found out yesterday that her dalmatian has cancer and today will find out whether chemo might benefit him, but it is not looking good. I lived with them for 5 years, so he kind of feels like my dog, too, but I'm sure it's much worse for her and I *hate* not being able to do anything.)

Sorry to spew in your comments. I just don't feel right about posting anything in my journal right now.

Re: You have a Gorey tattoo? That's so <b>cool</b>...

I'm totally superstitious, however, friday and 13 both happen to be really lucky things for me, so friday the thirteenth is in fact the luckiest day of the year. You know, seeing as how my father was born on friday the thirteenth, and I can't remember any friday the thirteenth ever being bad. However, I should check the chinese calendar, if today is a ruin day, I may be fucked.

Fox has the same thing going... minus the father being born then, as far as we know.

This seems to be more the case with the people I know. I think you just don't want to conform.

so besides the number thirteen being an occult number recognised as dark or evil number and friday being the 6th day of a week which in Jesus' case was used because it ment the body could not be properly intered and its the last day of the week that god does stuff cause he rests on the seventh day (saturday)- Also its the day he made man so it makes sense that in the bible big things that god controls happen on the day that was used to create man.

The standard explaination for friday the thirteenth being a 'bad' day is that is the day that either a ceaser or a king who had armies all over the place had bishops and clergy loyal to certain beliefs slaughtered. he sent out the orders sealed to be opened on the thirteenth of that month so there was time for everyone to get them and so no news of the attack could spread.
