Friday the 13th as a concept might have begun way back in the middle ages, but the superstition has certainly stuck. Many folks avoid the unlucky number altogether, while some are very cautious every Friday the 13th. The number is considered to be bad luck…and it even has a scientific name to it: triskaidekaphobia is the fear of the number 13.

The origin and story of Jesus’ last supper, where 13 members were present, make for a strong basis for Friday the 13th beliefs. Jesus’ crucifixion was also on a Friday, which added greatly to the Christian basis for an aversion to the number 13. Many cultures have adapted the fear of the number, going back many years and persisting to this day. The Greeks even consider Tuesday the 13th to be unlucky. Meanwhile, the Italians don’t have anything against the number 13, but instead believe number 17 to be a bad omen.

What most people don’t realize is that having this superstition and the anxiety or fear it creates can actually cause bad things to happen, and there have been incidents to prove so. A stress management institute has estimated that a whopping 17 million to 21 million people are affected by the superstition. Airlines and businesses take a huge hit every time Friday the 13th comes around, because people would let the anxiety of bad luck shadowing them dictate their decisions, often choosing not to travel or even leave the house that day.

On the flip side, for many others, Friday the 13th is just another normal day, with normal routines to go ahead with. And for lovers of all things horror, it’s a day to celebrate one of their favorite movie franchises, Friday the 13th.
