lucky or unlucky

It's the Friday of 13th, in M'sia today might be the day where people don't like to go back home late, scare about of 'the thingy', burning 'money' beside the road/ infront of house? or even stayed at home all night not dare to go out . In the western culture every Friday of 13th is something similar to Chinese culture as I mentioned.. Not to say you don't care or care about it, something happen just without any notice . People are all afraid the number 13 and Friday the 13th because it is said to be unlucky because it combines a historically unlucky day and unlucky number . The #13 has long gotten the human race riled up -- back to ancient times. It's even led to a condition called triskaidekaphobia, the fear of # 13 . That fear for 13 has led to some strange decisions and unusual behavior in the past .

According to Wikipedia some people are so paralyzed by fear that they avoid their normal routines in doing business, taking flights or even getting out of bed. In the past, "it's been estimaed that USD800 or 900 million is lost in business on this day. Despite this, Airlines dont suffer from any noticeable drop in travel on those Fridays' .

As we can see there is a Movie also titled as Friday, The 13th. I wanted to watch like ages ago still doesn't have a chance to ? Anyway, in 2010 there's only 1 Friday is in the 13th but in 2009 there are three months . People just never realize about it ..

Here is some superstitions that show the fear of this day .
