While there is little actual historical evidence or reference to Friday the 13th as a day of ill or good luck, it has not stopped the growth of superstition in the Western World. Here are some of the superstitions:
- Friday was an unlucky day mentioned in Canterbury Tales.
- 13 is an unlucky number as 12 is considered the number of completeness. A 13th is an omen of death to one in order to maintain the complete number of 12.
Phobias have evolved around the day Friday the 13th since the 19th century.
But we at The magical Blend would like to offer a different perspective!
Friday is a holy day and the beginning time for prayer in several religions. The ending of a work week and a time to relax. Today we cheer TGIF! Thank God It's Friday!
Numerologically, 13 is 1 and 3 which them make 4. the number 4 means stability, grounding, earth. It is associated with calm as well as strength and steadiness. Things falling into the proper place and order for completeness and growth are also part of the meanings of this number. And thus also prosperity and material wealth.
