Friday the 13th!!

According to urbanlegends.com, "the sixth day of the week and the number 13 both have foreboding reputations said to date from ancient times. Their inevitable conjunction from one to three times a year (there will be three such occurrences in 2012!!!!) apparently portends more misfortune than some credulous minds can bear. According to some sources it's the most widespread superstition in the United States today. Some people refuse to go to work on Friday the 13th; some won't eat in restaurants; many wouldn't think of setting a wedding on the date."

What do you think about Friday the 13th? Or even just the number 13? Lucky or unlucky?
