Well tomorrow is Friday 13th. So how do you feel about this? Does the idea scare you? Are you superstitious? Do you dread that something bad will hhappen to you on this day? or do you just shrug it off like me, and think something bad could happen any day? What are your views?

Friday 13th - fridy 13th are you superstitious?
It has never bothered me as I have never seen 13 as an unlucky number. I believe susperstition is a great scapegoat when something goes wrong in our lives. I worked in the theatre when I was younger and if an actors performance was crap, they would find something to blame it on. "I fluffed my lines because you put a new pair of shoes on the table" Yer right, it had nothing to do with being an awful actor darling!!lol What does scare me though is the fear of them repeating the series of bloody Friday 13th films.

I know this sounds utterly and totally weird but I actually look forward to Friday 13th, and sadly there are only about two or three in each year so they are in fact very very rare! In the past I have had luck and windfalls bestowed upon me on this date. I even went out and bought my first pack of tarot cards purposely on Friday 13th and they cost me £13! So roll on tomorrow and here's hoping I get another windfall. I am not superstitious so it's just another day. 13 isn't unlucky for me.

nothing bad has ever happened to me on any other Friday the 13th So it doesn't bother me really. I heard that in numerology 13 isn't really an unlucky number and don't know where the idea that it is comes from.

I did not even realize tomorrow is Friday the 13th. I guess it'll just be another Friday to me. When I was in school, I loved Fridays because the next day is Saturday and Saturday means no school! I was joyous on Fridays and didn't want it to end. No, the idea of Friday the 13th does not scare me. I'm not superstitious though I'm afraid of the idea of ghosts! If you expect something bad, then probably something bad will happen. So, look on the bright side!

I've been staring at my calendar for days wondering what's significant and now I've just realised thanks to you Rosie....doh! It doesn't worry me. When I was younger I used to like the idea of tempting fate and would look for black cats crossing my path or ladders to walk under. Black cats are pretty rare. There is a cat that hangs around here that looks black...his name is Salem, but when the sun shines on him you can see he's really a very dark brown.I have a black dog and she's walked across my path several times today...does that count? The goat is always walking across in front of me...he is a cloven hoofed animal...oooohhh!

Not at all i was born on the 13th, engaged on the 13th and married maybe not fridays but i kind of like it lol The reason its considered unlucky because of Judas the 13 th disciple to Jesus.

I guess I'm not a supersticious person, but it really doesn't bother me. I wouldn't pick that date on purpose I suppose :) My 13th birthday was on a Friday the 13th. My brother teased me a lot, but I can remember that my grandma bought me a little diamond ring for my big day so it wasn't a bad day at all. My daughter is very pregnant and due any minute, she made the comment the other day that she didn't want to have her little baby on Friday the 13th. You're right, something bad could happen on that day, or any day for that matter.

Friday the 13th scraes me as much as Thursday the 12th does. It's all just another day to me. I have no feelings about supposed superstitions etc about this day. It's just another weekend starting is all. So enjoy the day as any other if you can. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

NO. Not at all. I treat every Friday the 13th like an ordinary day. What is there to be scared to.? As long as you have faith in God, this day won't be a problem at all. It isn't also scary because the sun would always come out and the weather will always be fine. Hope you don;t get scared on this day. Goodluck!

LOL, I didn't know tomorrow is Friday the 13th. Either my mind is wandering around or I need a cup of coffee. I basically grew up in a family who was a certified superstitious believer. I remember my grandma telling me to avoid looking at black cat. She said it can bring bad luck. Surprisingly, I didn't end up being a superstitious bunny. I don't see anything unusual with this particular day really. Maybe, I was just too busy to notice anything at all. :)
