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).

Because Jesus Christ was supposed to have - in popular perception in the Middle Ages - to have been crucified on Friday, April 13th.

In all honesty its lucky for me, I don't know why others find it unlucky, but they're just nuts

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.

The last remaining knights from the nights Templar who protected the holy grail (people think there were only 5 left at that time((1307))) were killed on Friday the 13th.

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)
