It's unlucky and with good reason

    is in 3 days. Often associated with bad luck and catastrophe, in some cultures it's considered lucky. What is it for you?

    Friday 13th can happen any day. Last Friday my steels didn't come, but they are up now. So I missed a day of progress, nothing to worry about, since it gave me the opportunity to dance without builders listening.

    I think my builders get worried about the dancing, but who cares?

    We have a non-uniform day so hyper kids. Definitely unlucky for some.

    I walked into work one Friday 13th. There were three lifts and they were all on the sixth floor so the display read 666. Despite such a bad omen the day was uneventful.

    I wonder why some cultures consider it lucky?

    They probably wonder why we consider it unlucky...

    They probably do. I'm curious as to how these differences arose. I must look into it.

    Considered lucky here in France, people have a flutter on scratchcards and there's an extra lottery draw. More play on Friday 13th than other days

    For balanced reporting we need the Mr Belle view.
