Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th unlucky for some. The origins of the superstition behind ‘Friday the 13th’ are widely debated and many theories have actually been debunked. Separately the number 13 and Fridays (mostly from Christian connotations with Jesus being crucified on a Friday) are said to be unlucky but it wasn’t until the 19th century that Friday the 13th specifically started to be referenced. For some poor souls this cultural belief has actually developed into a full-on phobia known as Paraskevidekatriaphobia (yep that’s actually the word!), fear of Friday the 13th. But fear not glorious people, today is just a day and like any day it is what you make of it 💫
