About Friday The 13th
Yaay it's Friday, everyone!
So T.G.I.F, huh? XD
Not to me because i still have to work on Saturday for a half work day, which is very sucks and boring ._. I guess the best solution is finding new work place with more wise rules lol.
Back to topic: What is Friday the 13th? Do you often hear it? Do you believe this day is unlucky to you, and people around? Actually i don't find this day as a big bad superstition rumour here. Some cultures considered Friday and number 13 as unlucky day, some cultures not.
Here's some part of info i got from internet:
-In numerology , the number twelve is considered the number of completeness, as reflected in the twelve months of the year, twelve hours of the clock , twelve gods of Olympus , twelve tribes of Israel , twelve Apostles of Jesus, the 12 successors of Muhammad in Shia Islam, twelve signs of the Zodiac, etc., whereas the number thirteen was considered irregular, transgressing this completeness.
-Friday is also the day when Jesus Christ was crucified, making it through folklore and adding to its unpopularity.
-People who believe and fear Friday the 13th has been called friggatriskaidekaphobia ( Frigga being the name of the Norse goddess for whom "Friday" is named in English and triskaidekaphobia meaning fear of the number thirteen), or paraskevidekatriaphobia, a concatenation of the Greek words Paraskeví (Παρασκευή, meaning "Friday"), and dekatreís (δεκατρείς, meaning "thirteen") attached to phobía (φοβία, from phóbos, φόβος, meaning "fear").
The latter word was derived in 1911 and first appeared in a mainstream source in 1953.
You can read the complete source here ^_^
While here, Friday night is always related with horror, mystery, spooky, haunted place, urban myth. Therefore, some tv show that is on Friday night will be full of mystery or mystical show. For example: [Masih] Dunia Lain, Dua Dunia, Mister Tukul Jalan Jalan (in the month of Ramadan the events are disabled, except Mister Tukul becomes Islamic pilgrimage). Those tv shows name are in a local channel. Or maybe you can watch the streaming version here. So every Friday night, then we will simply find a variety of events that contain mystical and supernatural world. There are several other places that were sacred to visit in Friday night. Well, it is just aboud the day not the number 13 :-) I don't get people around me feeling like paraskevidekatriaphobia today include me. How mouthful it is! XD
Oh i wanna show you this, may remind you of today..
Remember this? Ha? :3
Out of the religy thing, actually Friday and number 13 are as same as another.. Some can be good, some can be bad to us. But that's life, right? Believe or not, it's all up to you ;)
So.. What do you think about it?
