The Unlucky Number 13

The number 13 is considered unlucky all over the world. In France, there are no houses with the number 13. In Italy the number 13 is not used on lottery tickets. Most airlines omit the number 13 on their seats and sky-scrappers do not have a 13th floor. In Norse mythology there was a banquet in the great hall, Valhalla. Twelve gods were invited, but Loci, and evil spirit, crashed the feast—an uninvited guest and the 13th person. Baldor, the god’s favorite was killed. The superstition was confirmed by the last supper of Jesus Christ and his 12 desciples.
