For many people in the West, March 13 will be scary. It is said that there are millions of people who will be so scared that they will refuse to get out of bed all day! 1
Being nervous about Friday the 13th is a superstition (迷信). 2 Many buildings don’t have a 13th floor and, in races, no one wants to wear the number 13. According to some, this is because Judas, the man who betrayed Jesus, was the 13th guest at the Last Supper – Jesus’ last meal before being crucified (十字架上钉死). Jesus was crucified on a Friday making the combination of “Friday” and “13” particularly unlucky.
3 For example, people think it is unlucky to walk under ladders. 4 This behavior is seen as an insult (侮辱) to the sun and a sign that everyone inside will have bad luck. When a black cat passes in front of you, it is also thought to mean that bad luck is coming.
5 Well, four-leaf clovers (三叶草), horseshoes facing up and even rabbit feet are said to bring good luck. There is a rhyme to help you remember the last lucky item, a “penny”: “Find a penny, pick it up; All the day you’ll have good luck!”
