It is early morning on Friday the 13th. It is estimated that almost $1 billion in business is not done on this day that would normally be done on a Friday, due to irrational fears of not wanting to do business or make decisions on a Friday the 13th. Highlighted by those who avoid air travel on a Friday that happens to fall on the 13th of the month, not only are air travel bookings markedly slow, air and public travel ticket agents know they will be extra busy with changes and no-shows today.
Approximately 25% of all humans associate the number 13 with bad luck. The fear of 13 can be traced back to a Norse myth about 12 gods having a dinner party at Valhalla, their heaven. In walked the uninvited 13th guest, the mischievous Loki. Once there, Loki arranged for Hoder, the blind god of darkness, to shoot Balder the Beautiful, the god of joy and gladness, with a mistletoe-tipped arrow.
BbbBalder died and the whole Earth got dark. The whole Earth mourned. It was a bad, unlucky day. From that moment on, the number 13 has been considered ominous and foreboding.
