Is it true that you get bad luck on Friday the thirteenth?
unless ur weird no. ANSWER#2: You will have bad luck on Friday13th and any other day of the year if you want it to be so! We have been conditioned by centuries of superstition stemming from the further misconstrued notions of early Christian Church in the West ( The Church of Rome). This superstition has its roots in the fact that Judas the Iscariot, the "betrayer", was the thirteenth person at the "Last Supper", the first to leave. Judas's presence was considered 'unlucky' for Jesus who is reported to have died on FRIDAY at 3.00pm. Currently, most Roman Catholic and Orthodox Christians believe any Friday is 'unkucky' or a day for sorrowful reflection and penitence lest they too identify themselves as "betrayers" of Jesus.

When is a person considered to be 'superstitious'?
A person is considered to be superstitious when they believe that an unrelated circumstance has a bearing on the outcome of a particular happening. For instance, some sports persons may believe that they have a lucky pair of socks. If they do not wear those socks then their luck will be changed for the worse. A person may think that a black cat crossing their path will give them bad luck. Friday the thirteenth is probable the most common. Some people believe that this is a bad luck day. When something bad happens on that day then they blame it on "Friday the 13th". Everyday has something that does not go right in it. It is usually dismissed unless it is on Friday the 13th. Then the date is blamed. Many people like to have an excuse or reason for what happens to them so they use superstitions.

Why is it bad luck to do your laundry on Easter Sunday?
It is not 'bad luck' to do laundry on Easter Day or any other day in fact. The reason for this is simple: 'luck' as such, does not exist and is part of superstitious nonsense. Easter Day is commemorated as the day in which Jesus Christ rose from death after his crucifixion the Friday before. 'Luck' therefore and other superstition, has no place in matters Christian or elsewhere for that matter.
