Friday the 13th is considered unlucky by a lot of people, and by a few others, lucky. Do you consider Friday the 13th as unlucky, or merely an old superstition? Did anything bad ever happen to you, or your friends, on Friday the 13th?

I don't recall anything bad happening to me or anybody I know on Friday the 13th. In Nicaragua Sunday, the 7th is considered bad luck.

I never knew that about Nicaragua...very interesting. I wonder why they consider that to be an unlucky day?! Thanks for sharing, I learn something new every day!

Thanks for taking the time to hunt that up! That's really interesting about the 7th. Sometimes you can see where in primitive, or different, cultures why they would think that after something bad happens. Still, it's nice to know the basis behind the superstition...thanks again for filling me in on the Nicaraguan one!

Well nothing really bad has ever happened on friday the 13th so I don't believe it as unlucky there are some other days which I think are unlucky but I am just having a bad day.

I don't believe it's unlucky either, just something a lot of superstitious people believe. So sorry you had a bad day, hope it's better today!

Nothing bad's ever happened to me on Friday the 13th either, lol. I've read that the belief was started from Jesus last supper. There were originally 13 at the table, including Judas; what Judas did probably made the ancients believe that the number 13 was unlucky. I can't believe to this day that high rise buildings don't have a 13th floor...they just skip from 12 to 14. You wouldn't think modern man would still get caught up in superstitions, would you, lol?!

I've never worried about Friday 13th but for a couple of years something bad happened on a Saturday 3rd and I began to get worried about that. It was just coincindence though.

I used to look at Friday the 13th as a very unlucky day and to be very careful with your choices. Since I've gotten older, it doesn't bother me, and I no longer believe it.

Just another day,just another superstition.The suprising thing would be if no accidents,deaths or births occured on Friday the thirteenth.

I agree with you...it'd be more than surprising if nothing ever happened on any day, much less Friday the thirteenth! I don't think there's ever been a day in the history of the world where something negative didn't happen. Accidents, etc, never take a holiday, so why should the 13th be any different?!

You're right hari, they do seem to add spice to our lives in some ways. Good to joke about, and good for discussion on an otherwise boring Friday.
