Friday the 13th is often called an unlucky day.
As at 2004, Donald Dossey, founder of the Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute in Asheville, North Carolina noted how serious US citizens took this day:
It’s been estimated that [U.S] $800 or $900 million is lost in business on this day because people will not fly or do business they would normally do.
This is ridiculous.
Let’s quickly run through 3 of the reasons why Friday the 13th is considered a very very bad day.
- The fact that 13 people gathered for the Last Supper – that is Jesus and his 12 disciples – and one person was crucified the next day shows that it’s a bad day.
According to the Romans 3:25 of the Holy Bible, Jesus was sent by God to be a propitiation through faith for our sins. Jesus’ death had nothing to do with the gathering. Can we move on?
2. A Norse myth tells the tale of 12 Greek gods having a dinner party at Valhalla. The uninvited 13th guest, Loki (the god of mischief) arranged for the god of joy and gladness to be shot with an arrow. He died and the world was plunged into mourning.
3. It is also believed that the disagreement between Cain and Abel took place on this day.
LOL. Who produces these findings?
We don’t believe in this Friday the 13th B.S really.
If you do, what you really need is a drink.
Purge that phobia now!
