Friday the 13th is neither a lucky or unlucky day. It is superstition that makes people believe the day is unlucky.

Friday is considered unlucky because Jesus was crucified on Friday, but in Greece and the Spanish-speaking world, Tuesday is considered the unluckiest day of the week because the Ottoman Turks conquered Constantinople on a Tuesday (May 29, 1453).

I personally don't believe it, however, many superstitious people do, due to 13 being an 'unlucky' number, Friday apparently being a 'unlucky' day, and with the horror movie.

Friday the 13th as an 'unlucky' day originated, most believe, from the fact that Jesus Christ was crucified on a Friday, and there were 13 people present at the Last Supper (himself and 12 disciples) on the Thursday night when he was betrayed. However, to regard the day of Friday 13th as 'unlucky' is based on superstition and has no place in Christian belief. Christians believe in a God who rules overall. Luck does not come into it. Therefore a superstitious belief in Friday 13th as being unlucky is totally incompatoble with Christian belief and doctrine; Christians do not rely on luck but on a loving God who is alongside them in the good times and the bad.

There are quotes about Friday being unlucky as well as the number 13 being unlucky. They are mostly historical, unattributed, and date back to 1656. For example "Now Friday came, you old wives say, Of all the week's the unluckiest day." (1656)

No, Monday is not worse than Friday the 13th. Both of these days can be considered just another day to some people. Others feel that Friday the 13th is the day of bad luck and is the worst day ever.

I am not aware that anyone considered it a sin to be born on a particular day. Friday was considered unlucky. as was the number 13, so Friday the 13th is doubly unlucky, but a sin?Believe it or not the puritans did considered it a sin to be born on Sunday - as you are not suppose to do any Labour on Sunday. It was a subject of debate in parliament and the house of lords and after two weeks of arguing they conceded that it was a sin and that the mother of such a child should do penance for her 'infraction'.

Friday the thirteenth is considered to be unlucky because it is the day that the Roman Catholic Church chose to murder/assassinate every single member and supporter of the Knights Templar. They very nearly succeeded in making the entire Order of the Knights Templar extinct.
