When did the Number 13 become such an unlucky number?
« on: 16 June, 2014, 12:20:37 PM »
I've always been told that Number 13 related to being one more than the number of Jesus's twelve disciples.

Don't know if that is gospel but...what is the origin of Unlucky 13? And how long has it been around?
