13, whats up with 13? Why is it so unlucky? Now that we are going into 2013 will it be unlucky too? Well, I did some looking and 13 is considered unlucky expecially in western cultures. Why, one reason is because on Friday 13th in 1307, King Philip IV of France ordered the arrest of the Knights Templar. That didn't end well at all. It is said that a proper hangman's noose takes 13 turns to create, another bad ending, and finally there were 13 at the Last Supper.
I don't think that 2013 will be unlucky, our family has exciting things happening this year and much like famous ball players, Alex Rodriguez, Yao Ming, or Dan Marino who all wear 13 on their jersey, I know that this year will be a lucky, wonderful and prosperous year. It will start off like it always does for our family, we will be together watching the ball drop, then my awesome family will bring out my birthday presents. We will dance and then go to sleep, just to wake up in the morning to hot coffee and the Rose Bowl Parade. (I LOVE Parades)
Happy New Year All!!
