Friday the 13th


Today is a Friday the 13th. Many people think and believe that a Friday the 13th is not a lucky day. But for me, it's a lucky day!

Every new day is a blessing from God so it is a lucky day! I never consider this day or any day for that matter an unlucky day. And besides, I was born on a 13th day of December so for sure, there has been birthday anniversaries of mine that fell on a Friday the 13th.

The fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia. Some do really have this kind of fear.

My Mom used to tell us that it is not safe to travel on a Friday the 13th. Most likely, accidents will happen. Although there has been accidents all over the world that happen on this day, thank God, no accidents has happened to any of my close friends and family on a Friday the 13th. Well, whether it is a Friday the 13th or any day, accidents do happen anytime, anywhere.

How about you? Do you consider a Friday the 13th a day of bad luck or a day of good luck. Are you afraid of a Friday the 13th?

I happen to agree with you about Friday the 13th. I was also born on the 13th month of April. Even if it's not Friday, lot of people do believe that for some superstition, 13th is an unlucky number. But for me, I don't think that way. I just happen to be an optimistic person which means I leave everything to God. He's the only one knows and nobody else.
