Feeling Lucky or Superstitious

Today is Friday the 13th.  Some people think of this as a Lucky number, others do NOT & avoid it!  I like to find out how things come about & did a little research today.  I found some interesting information:

Triskaidekaphobia (pronunciation: /?tr?ska??d?k?'fo?bi?, ?tr?sk?-/, TRIS-kye-DEK-?-FOH-bee-? or TRIS-k?-DEK-?-FOH-bee-?; from Greek tris meaning "three", kai meaning "and", deka meaning "10" and phobos meaning "fear" or "morbid fear") is fear of the number 13 and avoidance to use it; it is a superstition and related to the specific fear of the 13th person at the Last Supper being Judas, who betrayed Jesus Christ and ultimately hanged himself. It is also a reason for the fear of Friday the 13th, called paraskevidekatriaphobia

 

No matter what day it is-Be Blessed & Be a Blessing!
