Hello lovelies! I hope that none of you have Paraskavedekatriaphobia -
it is the fear of Friday the 13th, which is today!
I like Friday the 13th. In some cultures, it is a day that is considered good luck.
In others, it is considered a day that witches go out to have fun!
According to Wikipedia, the unrivaled source of all knowledge and truth, there is a lot of history and speculation surrounding this superstition.
In numerology, the number twelve is considered the number of completeness. Examples of this belief are the twelve months of the year, the twelve signs of the zodiac, and the twelve hours of the clock. Therefore, the number thirteen is considered irregular.
There is also a superstition that having thirteen people dining together at a table will result in the death of one of the diners. [Remember in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire?!]
Friday is also considered an unlucky day in many cultures. Therefore, the two elements put together equal a very unlucky day in many people's eyes.
Now, I am not crediting or discrediting this superstition. Personally, I like to use the day to have fun when everyone else is freaking out!
And you know me, I will take any excuse to dress up. ;]
So here is my Friday the 13th themed outfit for today:
What do you think of this superstition?
