Today is Friday the 13th.  I always wondered why Friday the 13th was considered a scary day or a day of bad luck.  So, where did fear of Friday the 13th originate?

According to Patch.com,

Christianity. Those in the religion believe Jesus was crucified on a Friday, so the day is considered a bad omen. Additionally, the 13th guest at the Last Supper betrayed Jesus which is likely why 13 is considered an unlucky number.

Ooooh, ok!  I understand now.  😐
