It's Friday the 13th

How many decades have we known that Friday the 13th have been feared because it is often believed to bring bad luck? There's even a fear of Friday the 13th called Paraskevidekatriaphobia. I guess if you are superstitious enough there's no doubt that you will take extra precautions or will not tempt to even go out of your house.

I'm not sure if I believe Friday the 13th because just like any day, it can bring bad luck to you. If it's your time to die or perish in this world then it's really your time, maybe it just coincide with this popular superstition.

Accdg. to wikipedia here's the history:
According to folklorists, there is no written evidence for a "Friday the 13th" superstition before the 19th century. The earliest known documented reference in English occurs in an 1869 biography of Gioachino Rossini:

[Rossini] was surrounded to the last by admiring and affectionate friends; and if it be true that, like so many other Italians, he regarded Friday as an unlucky day, and thirteen as an unlucky number, it is remarkable that on Friday, the 13th of November, he died.[8]
What about you do you believe Friday the 13th will bring bad luck?
