3. Friday the 13th is also implicated in the murders of the Knights Templar by the Church. This is supported by the reported arrest of Jacques de Molay, the Grand Master of the Knights Templar on Friday, October 13, 1307.
4. Wall Street also seems to give some credence to the fear of Friday the 13th. On October 13, 1989, there seems to have been large “mini” crash. This crash appears to add fuel to the fire regarding Friday the 13th.

Fridays are often referred to as a day of poor luck.The Crucifixion supposedly took place on Friday. Eve may have offered Adam the apple on a Friday, and the Great Flood and Confusion at the Tower of Babel might have taken place on Friday. Friday seems to be a day to end things, not begin them.
