Why is number 13 bad luck?
Some people think that odd numbers are bad luck, but as far as I know, the number 13 is not generally thought of as unlucky. The only exception I know of is the superstition that revolves around Friday, the 13th. Several hundred years ago, there was a secret society of rich and powerful knights who were beloved and feared by all. They were called "The Knights Templar." It was on Friday, October 13th, 1307 that the Knights Templar were arrested and executed on mass on several criminal counts by the church. That day is still feared because of the dreadful events that took place so long ago. The deaths of the Knights Templar had a profound effect on European life and the course of western history.

Most of our current society is based on Greek culture and the Greeks had 12 as their lucky number. So many people had 12 as their lucky number, hence anything over 12 was considered bad luck. Indeed, many cultures identified 12 as lucky, the same way we deem… Read More

Luck, it has been said, occurs at the intersection of preparation and opportunity. (Don't worry; it takes a while for the meaning of this to sink in.) There is no such thing as 'bad luck forever.' What may appear to be a string of so-called 'bad luck' is either coincidence or mindset or a combination thereof. Having a positive outlook, and being prepared to take advantage of an opportunity when it comes along, are the… Read More
