13...Bad Luck or Not??

Number 13

Number 13 is associated with Bad Luck. It has a specifically recognized phobia, 'Triskaidekaphobia'. Triskaidekaphobia (from Greek tris=three, kai=and, deka=ten) is fear of the number13, it is a superstition and related to a specific fear of Friday the 13th, called paraskevidekatriaphobia or friggatriskaidekaphobia.

The story begin from
Friday the Thirteenth - The Scandinavian's believed that the number 13 was unlucky due to the mythological 12 demigods being joined by a 13th, an evil one, who brought misfortune upon humans. It was also said that Christ was crucified on Friday and the number of guests at the party of the Last Supper was 13, with the 13th guest being Judas, the traitor.
Wow!! Sound terrifying isn't it??
Well, worry not because superstitions are often based on rumors and unrelated facts cobbled together, and the dread of the number 13 is no exception.

For Me, of course myself, 13 is a great and lucky number.
Although you guyz think that 13 isn't good, but it's only a plain number...
