Friday 13th

It has long been a tradition that Friday 13th of any month brings bad fortune to many people. So much so, that there are many who will not lift their heads above the covers. Many people swear that if they are going to have an accident or spill a beverage it will most certainly happen on a Friday 13th.

There are many myths and legends as to why the superstition arose but it is most likely born out of a secret death warrant signed by the Roman Catholic Pope in alliance with the King of France on Friday 13th October 1307. Fear sprang up from the Knights Templars, a secret organisation that the church opposed. The warrant was to execute members of the Knights Templars. Indeed, Jaques DeMolay who was their Grand Master was arrested, brutally tortured and finally crucified.

So take care . . . on this Friday 13th!
