    I know this is a really weird time to be asking this, but can someone please explain to me why people are afraid of Friday 13th?

    My friend and I are going on a residential to Italy next year with other people from my year group and the day we come back is Friday 13th. My friend told me she felt sorry for me. I assumed she felt sorry because we'd be leaving Italy on my birthday, but she said it was because it was a Friday 13th :/

    It's to do with western superstition and old stories in which bad things happened on Friday 13th but honestly I don't think I've had anything bad happen to me on that specific date. Go and enjoy Italy! It's a lovely country and I'm sure you'll have a great time! Just stay safe and have common sense and you'll be fine don't worry

    Lol. That's what I say all the time when someone brings up Friday 13th or if it is Friday 13th (to pretend I know what I'm talking about)
