If one would choose a day of a year where there lies spookiness and scare in the air, Halloween will definitely be the first choice. But there is also one familiar date that shares a similar feel; Friday the 13th! Some may say it is the day of bad luck where bad things happen. Some may say it is just Murphy’s law or Sod’s law.
Let’s find out!
BACK TO BASICS
Friday the 13th actually has no exact reason as to where it begins but according to certain tradition, it started all the way back to the Middle Ages and Biblical times.
After that day, there are a string of events that happen particularly on Friday the 13th, a lot of people developed the idea that it is jinxed and they should take extra precaution at anything they do, to be able to avoid anything bad that could happen.
Since Friday the 13th is an acclaimed date from all over the wld, even psychologist have come up with a name to describe the feeling of irrational fear for this peculiar date; paraskavedekatriaphobia.
