Your lucky day is today, tomorrow, and the rest of your life by doing a few straightforward and easy things.
It’s Friday the 13th, and for many, the most superstitious day they can think of. Why is this day considered to be the unluckiest day? There are many theories behind, but here are some facts about this day of ill-repute.
Some believe that Friday the 13th has a biblical origin. Jesus was crucified on a Friday, and the Last Supper the evening before the crucifixion was attended by 13 people, where Judas was number 13.
Another interesting observation is that Paraskevidekatriaphobia (try to repeat that word three times), probably is the most common superstition in the U.S. Paraskevidekatriaphobia is Greek, where Paraskevi stands for Friday and Dekatreis means 13.
A report in the prestigious magazine British Medical Journal reveals some incredible figures.
According to the report, on a Friday 13th, “The risk of hospital admission as a result of a transport accident may increase by as much as 52%.”
