How Did 13/Friday the 13th Get Such A Bad Rap?
The superstition regarding 13 likely arose in the Middle Ages, but the fear of Friday the 13th (aka paraskevidekatriaphobia) not only is more recent, but also has pervaded our society in may ways. For example, many hotels and large buildings skip the 13th floor entirely, and it’s an unwritten maritime rule that ships are never launched on Friday the 13th. Many people also fear it’s unlucky to have 13 guests at a dinner table.
Regardless of the various theories (and there are quite a few) on how/when it began, there is no question that fearing Friday the 13th is one of the most common Western superstitions. Of course, the irony is that the 13th day of the month is more likely to fall on a Friday than any other day!
Make PCH Your Superstition
While most superstitions are based on a sense of fear, some can be quite beneficial. For example, you can be superstitious about making sure you enter to win every day at PCH.com , or playing the same numbers every day at the all-new PCH Keno, or even wearing the same socks when you play PCHgames. Holding tight to this superstition not only puts you on the road to becoming a PCH VIP, but also could make you a PCH Millionaire!
