Friday the 13th is synonymous with bad luck and superstitions — so much so that some people flat-out refuse to leave home and opt for barricading themselves in their homes some may be spotted wearing a helmet and knee pads all day long fearing that something terrible is bound to happen to them.
However, there are individuals like me, wondering if there is any real truth behind the Friday the 13th. Honestly I’m just curious to know if this day really resembles bad luck or it is simply an old superstition that holds no truth. Sure! I have seen the movie based on this day but it is too hard for me to believe it truly happened since we live in a world of amazing and creative content marketers.
Of course content marketers can pick out any date on the calendar or any day in history packed with weird stuffs that happened on that particular and sell them on the media. For the fun of it here is a list of events showing that even the good can happen in a bad day they say.
