Another Meaningless, Totally Insignificant Friday The 13th. It Is Only Really ‘Fun’ When It Falls In October And You Happen To Be A ‘Knights Templar’ In Drag.

Friday the 13th Post:
The significance
Sep. 13, 2013.

On average we get a Friday the 13th every 212 days.

We already had one this year in September.

We will have another one in June 2014.

Friday the 13th really ALL has to do with the Dissolution of the Knights Templar on Friday, October 13th, 1307. [See above post.]

So Friday the 13th in December is meaningless. Sorry.


Another Friday The 13th; Really A Month Too Early To Be Significant — Since It Was All To Do With The Dissolution Of The Knight’s Templar.

Despite all the other theories and beliefs, this ‘superstition‘ about Fridays the 13th being unlucky really appears to have its roots in Friday, October 13, 1307, when, with the blessing of the French Pope, Clement V (#196), the first of the Clement V  popes, the French King, Philip IV, who was heavily in fiscal debt to the Templar’s (the original international bankers), had most of the Templars in France arrested.

It was a bad day for the Templars — and was really the first major financial crisis in world history.

Hence why people were afraid of Fridays the 13th. They didn’t want a repeat of what happened to the (far from) ‘poor’ Templars.

This fact tends to be forgotten.

But, I, like a few others, want to make sure that we don’t forget why Friday the 13th is significant.

Today, at sundown is the start of Yom Kippur. Given that many Jewish holidays start on a Friday I have to assume that over the centuries having a holiday start on a Friday the 13th is quite common place. To be fair the Jews were probably very glad to see the backs of the Templar — who loved nothing better than butchering Muslims and Jews (given that they were supposed to be celibate).
