I was taught the unlucky 13 goes back to ancient times, way before Jesus, where 12 is a whole (as in the 12 hour clock for instance) while 13 is just one too many damned.gif

What were you studying that folklore was a component?

i just read this recently..


'Welcome back, 13 and 4 — missing floor numbers in Vancouver condo and office towers will soon be a thing of the past.

The city is cracking down on developers that leave out floor numbers considered unlucky.

The number 13 has long been considered unlucky in western cultures, and the numbers 4, 14 and 24 are often shunned because the word 'four' sounds like Cantonese words and phrases involving death.'
