I am not sure about why Friday the 13th is unlucky but there were 13 people present at the last supper and Jesus was crucified on a Friday.

On a slightly related topic, the number 666 invokes many worries because of the reference to it been the number of the beast in revelation. Leaving that aside the number 666 has many interesting properties.

1. The first seven prime numbers each squared and then added together equals 666.
2. The sum of all the numbers between 1 & 36 = 666
3. 1+2+3+4+567+89=123+456+78+9=9+87+6+543+21=666
4. 1+5+10+50+100+500=666
5. DCLXVI=666 all roman numerals used once except M.

Anyway don't be freaked out by these it is just a mathematical curiosity.

Happy Hols!
