Be careful, it’s Friday the 13th!

It’s Friday the 13th, a day for the superstitious who fear some bad luck or the lucky ones who dream of winning the jackpot.

Since the dawn of history, Friday the 13th has been considered a day of luck or danger in the Anglo-Saxon world, which is what “Geo” magazine said, which questions the origin of the superstition associated with Friday the 13th, which we do not know. Whether this is a myth or reality.

Nowadays, some buildings do not indicate the 13th floor and residents refuse to have the number 13 in their address, while some voluntarily avoid flying on Friday the 13th.

Historians place the blame on Big Gregoire

The fear of “Friday the 13th” is called “paraskevidékatriaphobia”, an unpronounceable word that has Greek origins: “paraskevi” which means “Friday”, “decatreis” (thirteen) and “phóbos” (fear or phobia) ). He said.

This bad reputation associated with Friday the 13th is reinforced by recent history, including in Quebec where health authorities declared a health emergency after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
