For centuries Friday the 13th has been seen as a very unlucky day in Western and Eastern superstition. The first documented reference to “Friday the 13th” comes from the 1869 biography of Gioachino Rossini, whose death happened to occur on Friday the 13th. No origin has been found to the superstition, however there are many theories. One theory seems to be the combination of two superstitions: That Friday is an Unlucky Day; and that 13 is an Unlucky Number. Lucky or Not, Happy Friday the 13th!
