13 is not the unlucky number for me. It’s not that crazy, but for somehow I believe that number has something to do a magical whimsical power. Obviously when are heard of going to 13 years, is that sounds crazy for you? I believe it not. There are many details around for that number.


13 is a smallest number between 12 and 14 with eight letters in its name out in English. The numbers 13 through 19 is the ages of teenagers.  Why bothering in the first place of the number 13? In speech although for some people, it confused that it is sometimes mistaken are 13 and 30. (Like this movie: 13 going 30) Whenever it happens, it is unusually for me saying this word, however in other people’s minds, the numbers sometimes is contrasting such as 13, 14 and 15 as well. Some others say that lunar-solar calendars are sometimes called there’s a 13th month. Which it is approximately 12.41 lunations per solar year, and there is true months, plus a smaller and some portentous somehow.


In the way of tradition, if you think some 12 apostles in a last supper together with Jesus, that number 13 is usually the lucky number bringing the luck every time it passes. Why do you think about that way? Simple, I have auntie who falls her birthday in the day of 13, and also my grandmother’s birthday also falls to the number 13 as well. Who can make it fact if there is a real superstitious behind the 13?


Friday the 13th is a date considered that is bringing bad luck in western superstition. Although some of them aren’t real, because numbers somehow for me doesn’t concern me well. One of folklorists said that there is no written evidence for a Friday the 13th superstition before the 19th century. One person died whose name is Henry Sutherland Edwards who died on a Friday the 13th of November. Who could thought of that thing deserving in the place being is already written.


From the name of Frigga is the name of Norse goddess for whom Friday is named, and triskaidekaphobia means the fear of the number thirteen as well or paraskevidekatriaphobia, a concatenation of the Greek words Parekevi meaning “Friday.”


There are some many sources well in the meaning of the Friday the 13th which it’s hardly to explain in numerology. The movie of Friday the 13th is an American horror franchise that consists of eleven slasher films, a television show, novels, comic books, video games and merchandise. The franchise is mainly based on the fictional character of Jason Voorhees, who drowned at Camp Crystal as a boy due to the negligence of the teenage counselors. Decades later, the lake is rumored to be “cursed” and is the setting for a series of mass murders. Jason is featured in all of the films, either as the killer or as the motivation for the killings. The original film was written by Victor Miller, and was produced and directed by Sean S. Cunningham, later films brought in others for these positions. There are 12 series of this movie which has made first on 1980, a year before I came born in this world.

For me, it doesn’t matter whether you believe in this numerology series although I admit the films are kind of horror flicks. When I saw first watching that movie, it doesn’t me scared the second time or even how many times you watched in the television, or in the movie channels as well. Friday the 13th is a common name for some folklores stories athough some of the numbers are mistaken an unlucky number. 13 is not a unlucky number, for me it is a lucky number. What will you do if you see in the building without a 13th floor in the building? Be honest with me. Count one to hundred. When you surpass the number 13, you can’t say adding some 13, 14, 15 or so forth numbers are. The 13 is somewhat a sum of 4 which it’s very typical number of a word meaning love for me. You can’t determine which it’s the love word. Any kind of 4 letter words has a meaning of the sum of 13. Which I’m paranoid in this numerology, sometimes I sum the total of 13. You have to add together the numbers of 1 plus 3 that is equally of 4. I am not pretty sure if you are doing this. But practically in my life, it wasn’t just the same number for anything. And who could forget the Mayan calendar that it is said this year 2012 would bring some unanswered questions to give us a distraction from natural disasters. But in my case, it’s not that theory I just made up above. For somehow reasons why, I do not allow entertaining some bluffs of the 13 in my mind. Because that is what is supposed to some superstitions you are believing. Which it is why this is a perfect article you can read about it.
