Superstition tells us that Friday 13 is an unlucky day. There are many different theories why people think this is a bad day. One common belief is talked about in the Dan Brown's bestselling book 'The Da Vinci Code'. The book states that there once existed a rich and powerful group called the Templar Knights, who protected pilgrims on their way to the Holy Land. The Pope felt so threatened by the rise of the knights that he ordered their arrest in France on Friday, October 13, 1307. The arrests resulted in many knights being tortured or burnt alive. So it was certainly a bad day for them! On the other hand, many historians doubt that this is the real history of the Friday 13 superstition.
