Friday the 13th they say is a very unlucky day. I do not really believe this one actually but there are a lot of people who believe so. A lot of people associate the number 13 with bad luck especially those who are superstitious. I have heard and read a lot of stories about the origin of this belief. One of these is the story about the Knights Templar whose members were ordered arrested and executed by King Philip in France on October 13, 1307 and it was Friday. Erap was the 13th president of the Philippine Republic and look at what happened to him in 2001.
I have visited a place once where there is a tower that has no 13th floor; after the 12th floor the next one is 14th Maybe the owner of that building is also scared of bad luck brought about by the number 13. Well anyway, I am not superstitious and I don’t believe it. Everyday can be like Friday the 13th if we don’t know how to conduct our daily business with care. Accidents happen everyday not only on this day. So cheer up guys, this day does not bring bad luck. floor.
