📆 Friday the 13th - the so-called "day of troubles," widespread due to numerous superstitions and myths, according to which it is on this day that one should constantly be on the alert, ready for any trouble; try to beware of all kinds of failure.🤾♀️
The irrational fear of the number 13 has been given a scientific name: "triskaidekaphobia"😱 ; and on analogy to this, the fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskevidekatriaphobia😣, from the Greek words Paraskeví (Παρασκευή, meaning "Friday"), and dekatreís (δεκατρείς, meaning "thirteen").
According to folklore historian Donald Dossey, the unlucky nature of the number "13" originated with a Norse myth about 12 gods having a dinner 🍽 party in Valhalla. The trickster god Loki, who was not invited, arrived as the 13th guest and arranged for Höðr to shoot Balder with a mistletoe-tipped arrow. Dossey: "Balder died, and the whole Earth got dark.🌚 The whole Earth mourned. It was a bad, unlucky day." This major event in Norse mythology caused the number 13 to be considered unlucky.
As one expert said: "The two unlucky entities ultimately combined to make one super unlucky day."
There is a list of actions that are not advised to take on this day, such as not having surgery, getting married, not going to a new job, not lending money, etc.🚗🚊💸
❗ But it is important to remember that the fear of a "day of trouble" is just a superstition that has no rational basis, and only you determine how much it can affect your life.
