Friday the 13th was long considered a harbinger of bad luck. Friday the 13th has inspired a late 19th century secret society, an early 20th century novel, and dozens of horror movies. It describes fear of this supposedly unlucky day.
· What’s so unlucky about the number 13?
Researchers estimate that at least 10 percent of the U.S population has a fear of the number 13 and each year the even more specific fear of Friday the 13.
I ASKED SOME PEOPLE IF THEY THINK FRIDAY THE 13TH IS A UNLUCkY DAY
· I asked Cassidy, a Junior at Edison; she says, “No I feel like it’s just a myth”.
· I also Asked Rayvontay he says “I don’t believe in unlucky or lucky stuff,” but for this day he says he, ‘believes it’s an unlucky day.”
· Aliyah says, “I believe it’s unlucky just cause I’ve seen a lot of bad things happen on that day”.
