"It is now the 13th day of February, one day before Valentines but on the other hand, it also denotes Friday the 13th. month of love and yet the ever so-called "Friday the 13th" is on this month. Ironic? IRONIC YOURSELF!" Quoted by a friend. It's true the superstition, Friday the 13th, some people believe that it's true.
According to folklorists, there is no written evidence for a "Friday the 13th" superstition before the 19th century. The earliest known documented reference in English occurs in an 1869 biography of Gioachino Rossini.
Rate Of Accident
There are conflicting studies about the risk of accidents on Friday the 13th. The Dutch Centre for Insurance Statistics (CVS) on June 12, 2008, stated that "fewer accidents and reports of fire and theft occur when the 13th of the month falls on a Friday than on other Fridays, because people are preventatively more careful or just stay home; but statistically speaking, driving is a little bit safer on Friday 13th; in the last two years, Dutch insurers received reports of an average 7,800 traffic accidents each Friday; but the average figure when the 13th fell on a Friday was just 7,500. However, a 1993 study in the British Medical Journal that compared the ratio of traffic accidents between Friday the 6th and Friday the 13th, stated that there is a significant increase in traffic-related accidents on Fridays the 13th.
Still, Friday the 13th is a superstition, it's your choice to believe or not the outcome depends on what you do and how you do it.
