No need to be superstitious

Friday 13th April 2012
Spot the new leaf!
Spring is breaking with some leaves coming out, a warmth in the sun  --  and a chilly breeze.  But overall a lovely day and no need to be superstitious about Friday 13th.  I wonder how the idea came about.  Perhaps when people had misfortune on a Friday 13th they might say "No wonder!  After all,  Jesus died on a Friday and he was betrayed by one of the Twelve   --  which meant that thirteen were sitting round that table at the Last Supper.  Thirteen must be an unlucky number."  The when there were misfortunes on other days, nobody could think of any associations with the date.  It's like having a bad experience and saying "What have I done to deserve this?" but not thinking of asking the same question when things go well.
