It's funny - because I remember as a kid and well into my teens I *loved* Friday the 13th. It was my favorite day.

Then it stopped being anything at all.

At some point I realized that I had taken on the cultural "Oh no - bad luck!" without really *meaning it*. It was like it had just seeped into my head "that's what you say about it".

That's the danger of just letting these things slide passed you without thinking too hard about them. Even completely ridiculous things like having an opinion about a day of the year. Because "mainstream culture" has a way of just sliding in and making no sense whatsoever - and if you're not going to make any sense, it should be YOUR version of "not making sense"! :)
