Its friday the the thirteenth a day that many believe to be a day when bad things happen to them .A plane has gone down last night in buffalo killing 49 people and I am sure many are saying "see what I mean ".Personally I dont belive in such things and I think the plane going down and anything that happens are the product of bad choices or just mechanical problems,easily explainable phenomenon. However if there are persons out ther ewho can provide overwhelming evidence that friday the thiteenth is no ordinary day for them ,I am all ears. Happy friday the theirteenth.

Hi ronnyb, I have seen many Friday the 13th's and nothing bad has ever happened to me on either one of those days and I'm not expecting anything to happen today. Our thoughts and words play a big part in what happens to us, as can be seen if we look at very positive persons compared to the very negative. Some people are so scared of Friday the 13th that they refuse to get out of bed on that day, much less go to work. Of course something bad will happen to some people just as happened yesterday and will happen again tomorrow. There is really no such thing as time except as man has divided it into days months and years etc, so how could one day be different from another. You can be sure if anything happens to either of us today, it won't be because it was Friday the 13th. Blessings.

True me too and that is why I am wondering what the big fuss is about .I too believe that anything can happen to us on any day and sometimes the things we believe actualises it .Maybe if we were positive we would see that its just a day like any other .Thanks for your response

Friday the thirteenth has been the happiest day of my life. Today is my third re-birthday. I returned home from a nursing home where I was learning to walk agin after a serious accident.

When I was younger, I believed something bad would always happen on Friday the 13th. Now, it seems like the day goes by without much thought about the jinxing or things that might scare me.

Hi ronnyb! I used to fear Friday the 13th when I was young because of the movie Friday the 13th that I watched then. haha..But I am not that superstitious and I really don't believe that something bad will happen to me on that day. Take care and have a great day! lovelots..faith

Yes those friday the thirteenth movies sure inspired fear in the hearts of many a young child.But like you said as an older person now I dont have that belief anymore .In fact an earlier respondent wa stelling me that 13 was actually a lucky day in their culture but may be it is the day and the number that makes it bad .Thanks for your response

Well it is now Saturday the 14th and I am still here alive and well! I have never bought the Friday the 13th thing because as I mentioned before to another MyLotter, I live in Australia but I was born in Italy; over there they actually believe that 13 is a lucky number and that is why my mother wears a gold 13 on a chain around her neck. So it is difficult for me to imagine Friday the 13th as jinxed. You get what you believe, I think, if you convince yourself that the day is going to be jinxed, it probably will be!

Yes you are alive and I am happy that the friday the thirteenth jinx didnt get you.I have always heard that 13 was a bad lucky number not that I believe in such myths but that is waht I heard ,I guess its a case of cultures .Maybe you are right and your mind can concieve up any evil you think about

I've never had a problem with Friday the 13th. I think people who expect bad luck usually bring it upon themselves.

yea i know what you're saying. they keep thinking they are going to have bad luck, so they manage to accidentally cause it themselves. i try not to believe in it because i know im just going to drop my cellphone in the toilet or trip during the middle of school or something. its not true no such thing as bad luck with friday the 13th, just a bunch of people started a thing and now the whole world, or atleast the US is afraid of it...

Not really. Because I don't believe on it. I just believe that things happen because it is meant to be. And that it has a purpose behind it. And that is what we need to know and learn about.

I'm not really supersticious when it comes to Friday the 13th. This one has come and gone and I'm still here, I'm still living and breathing and happy as Larry! One thing I do like about this particular date though is the horror movies that seem to come on without fail! I am a blood and gore kind of man and I love seeing this in the movies, especially come Friday the 13th! Now it's Saturday the 14th and all is well! Andrew

A lot of worst events had happened outside friday the 13th. Like today, it's 14th but it seems like I'm getting more bad luck than I did yesterday.

Hmm... Nothing really bad had happen on me so far. I think this is just a superstition. If I remember correctly it was related to computers. At that day computer may not function properly. But anyway, both me and my computer were functioning well yesterday. ;-)

Nope...never. Friday the 13th is just another day for me. Nothing bad has happened the day just goes by like any other ordinary busy day.

Its just a psychological thing. There is no curse on this day. People are just superstitious and weak minded so they believe what ever explanation they can come up with. For me the day was just like another day. Everything happened horribly just like any other day. But I had my girlfriend to help me through it too. So, that makes up for it all.

I agree with you that the plane going down last night had nothing to do with it being Friday the 13th. I am not superstisious at all! I'm not even as good about it as you are because I am not even open to hearing about anything that is superstisious. Its a bunch of hog wash! Today a new Friday the 13th movie was supposed to come out I guess. Those movies terrify me so much that I cant sleep for days after watching them so there is no way I would go see one in a big dark theatre. Nothing bad at all happened to me today on Friday the 13th. I had an appointment today that went very well and then my children and I went shopping afterwards. I got some pretty good sales and I am happy. My daughter and son were very irritable though so that was kind of hard.

No, I have never had any bad experience with friday the 13th, well it is an ordinary day just like any days, if there are people who are unfortunate this day well, maybe it is part of destiny and choices and not because of the date and circumstances.

Hi ronnyb, friday the 13th hasn't been unlucky for me.The number 13 is my lucky number, I was born on a 13th day of a month.

Planes fall out of the sky all the time. They don't wait for Friday the thirteenth. I have never paid any attention to so called bad luck days or numbers. I would always poke fun at the kids I went to school with and later the people I worked with when they would get all hyper about what day it was.
