Is anyone superstitious enough to believe in today being unlucky?

Anyone have any experiences of bad luck on todays date?

Tell all.

I am not [COLOR=red]stupid[/COLOR]stitious. Many people think that Friday 13th is unlucky because of some bad thing that just happened to take take place on that day, but what about Monday 13th, Tuesday 13th, Wednesday 13th .....? Then what about all the good things that happen on Friday 13th?
Origins

The origin of the Friday the 13th superstition has been linked to the belief that there were 13 people at The Last Supper of Jesus , who was Crucified on Good Friday , but no evidence has been found that Friday 13th was considered especially unlucky until the 19th century. The number 13, however, has a long history of association with ill-luck. It has been linked to the fact that a Lunisolar Calendar must have 13 Month s in some Year s, while the solar Gregorian Calendar and lunar Islamic Calendar always have 12 months in a year. Another suggestion is that the belief originated in a Norse Myth about twelve Gods having a feast in Valhalla . The mischievous Loki gate-crashed the party as an uninvited 13th guest and arranged for Hod , the Blind god of darkness, to throw a branch of Mistletoe at Balder , the god of joy and gladness. Balder was killed instantly and the Earth was plunged into darkness and Mourning as a result. Both the first and last explanations, however, seem more relevant to the superstition linked to having 13 people at the same table during a meal. There is also another theory that Friday the 13th of October 1307 was the day that Philip IV Of France arrested and subsequenty tortured and killed hundreds of the French Knights Templar to get their money for the French treasury. One other note which predates all of the aforementioned is that the first Passover seems to have occurred on Friday the 13th. The death of the firstborns of Egypt occurred on a Shabbat on the 14th of Nisan in the evening. But the Jewish calendar counts days from sunset to sunset so this would have been Friday the 13th in terms of the gentile reckoning of the days. (Exodus 12:6) Feminists have argued that because of the lunar year and Friday being named after a goddess in most European pagan calendars, the fear of Friday the 13th is a patriarchal invention, associating femininity with bad luck.


I do not believe in luck (or being unlucky) because it suggests chance. It is not chance but choices we make that determine how life will pan out.

...Deep maybe ! ? ..............but I agree with this 100% ... so no I am not superstitious at all, would like to add that I think you get from life what you create for yourself & believe ............ re: if you believe in bad luck you WILL get it ! (The law of attraction) :)

My missus Friday the 13th yesterday.

Smashed the back window in the car when closing the boot, then when I walk in from work there is Dolmio white sauce everywhere, had been on the phone and shuck the jar at the same time (forgetting that she had already took the lid off) My little girl was covered and so was all the kitchen.
