Friday the 13th occurs in any month that begins on a Sunday. = Unluckiness of '13' =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. Christian associations The superstition seems to relate to various things, like the story of Jesus' last supper and crucifixion in which there were 13 individuals present in the Upper Room on the 13th of Nisan Maundy Thursday, the night before his death on Good Friday. Additionally, the superstition appears to be related to the extreme tragedy of the Trials of the Knights Templar which started with their arrest in Friday 13 October 1307, which was perpetrated by King Philip and his counselors with aims to seize the wealth of the Templars.
