What’s behind Friday 13th?
October 13, 2017
So, today being the unluckiest day of the year, Friday 13th has had its fair share of bad press. There are many people fear the day looming, or book to go out, see friends, make plans but then realise that it’s “Friday 13th” and cancel. Some people genuinely refuse to leave their home in fear of what Friday 13th may bring… It can bring so much dread that there is officially a phobia of it, Triskaidekaphobia is the official name given to the fear or avoidance of the number 13.
So, who started the centuries old rumour that causes anxiety amongst us all this time after? Some will say that it comes from Christianity or our friendly neighbours, the Vikings. The name Friday comes from the Norse goddess Frigg (or Freyja) who was the goddess of love, beauty, war, death and magic, however, may people believed this day to be unlucky (especially for weddings) and according to records, mainly by Christians during the 17 th century.
There are, however, numerous possibilities as to where the unfortunate number 13 has been deemed unlucky, evil or satanic… the most popular theories stems from both Christians and the Norse. It’s considered that it’s miserable existence comes from the 13 people seated around the table at the Last Supper. Judas Iscariot was by tradition the 13th person to be seated to dine. The Vikings of more ancient times told a very similar story, according to their old Norse myths, 12 Gods were feasting at the banquet hall at Valhalla when Loki, the God of Mischief, showed up uninvited! Loki, being the dreaded unwelcome 13th guest, went on to convince the God of Winter (Hod) to murder the God of Good (Balder), with mistletoe no less, throwing all of Valhalla into mourning, once again convincing us that 13 is not a number of people you want sat around your dinner table…
Consequently… it should also be made clear that considering the bad press 13 has, in some ancient cultures, 13 is quite the opposite. In ancient Egypt, they believed that life was a spiritual journey spent in stages. They believed that 12 of those stages were spent in this life, and the final 13th stage was a joyous transformative ascension to an eternal afterlife. So, as much as it was associated with death, it was not in decay and fear but as acknowledgement of a glorious eternal immortality.
So, there you go. Friday 13th has been seen as unlucky for as far back as Jesus and Valhalla but the ancient Egyptians felt that is was their symbol of their transition into immortality. Maybe I won’t be inviting 13 guests around my Christmas dinner table this year in fear of the mistletoe being used in a murder investigation, but as for Friday 13th I think maybe it’s just a misunderstood reject of society, if it was Monday 13th I’d completely understand and wouldn’t even question it after all, a Friday IS a Friday and we know what that means… Happy Friday everyone xx
