The number 13 has been regarded as unlucky number ever since long time ago. Many cities don’t have a 13th Avenue or 13th Street. Many buildings do not have 13th floor as well.

The sixth day of the week and the number 13 both have foreboding reputations said to date from ancient times, and their inevitable conjunction from one to three times a year portends more misfortune than some credulous minds can bear. Some sources say it may be the most widespread superstition in the United States. Some people won’t go to work on Friday the 13th; some won’t eat in restaurants; many wouldn’t think of setting a wedding on the date.

And this year we have Friday the 13th Oct.
