Are you superstitious? If yes, then today you probably put off all of your important stuff for a few days later, and if no, then Friday 13th is a usual working day for you, just as many others.
The superstition around this day may have Biblical origins. Some experts claim that Friday 13th was the day on which Eve bit the apple from the Tree of Knowledge, the great flood began and the builders of the Tower of Babel were punished. In the New Testament, there were 13 people present for Jesus’s last supper on Maundy Thursday, and this was the day before Christ’s crucifixion on Good Friday.
Friday 13th is the date when the Pope of the Roman Catholic church, together with the King of France, sentenced a monastic military order (known as the Knights Templar) to death, and ordered the torture and crucifixion of their leader.
This Friday has been being the Hangman’s Day (the day of execution of criminals) for many years. And Scandinavians believe that 13 signify bad luck because their 13th mythological demigod Loki was an evil one who brought great misfortune upon humans. Lots of horror movies were directed by people inspired by Friday 13th and people like the mysterious ambience of this day.
