Some of our coolest traditions/customs come from terrible, terrible things.
The first example that comes to mind is "Ring Around the Rosie" being about the bubonic plague. emotion_awesome

Friday the Thirteenth is seen as an unlucky day because way back in the crusades there was a mass burning of the Templars due to them being seen as Heritics by other people. They were hunted down, beaten and burned, said to be devil worshipers and has always been seen as unlucky from that day forth....


And also, in Chinese culture they believe the 13th is an unlucky number. 1 + 3 = 4 (which is pronunced as si, the same as "death" in Chinese)

That is interesting but my favorite number is 4 crying (no wonder i am so unlucky)

That is..uh.. scary....


Lol its not scary....its really interesting actually....


I happen to think the number 13 in itself is interesting as well ;3.


Get this... You cannot get 6:66 on a clock... Right? Instead you get 7:06... 7+6 = 13


The number 13 is rooted in controversy, and has developed into a superstitious thing. it never ceases to amaze me how much comes from that number xD.
I was told it was because the chruch did something bad like beating up inocent people and acussing them of going against god or something like that

The floor isn't even really skipped, just the label of 13 is. It's just silly.
