As with many superstitions, there are many ‘origin stories’, the most popular one for Friday the 13th originates from a Norse myth about 12 gods having a dinner party in Valhalla. The trickster god Loki, who was not invited, arrived as the 13th guest, and arranged for Höðr to shoot Balder with a mistletoe-tipped arrow.
Whatever the origin, a lot of people have an irrational fear of the number 13 (triskaidekaphobia) for example former Moto GP champion Ángel Nieto. The Spaniard won 13 world title championships, but when he won the last one, in 1984, he would tell people he won ‘12+1’.
Some people choose to spend this day indoors, because they fear something bad will happen, but if you have faith you are under the protection of God, and exercising your faith is a way of facing and overcoming your fears.
