Never Fear: EightVape and Friday the 13th

It's Friday the 13th!

If this unlucky day has got your agoraphobia flaring up (big day for Netflix), read this short blog to catch up on the history of Friday the 13th, and join us in considering some other parts of the world where Friday the 13th ain't such a bad thing. 

 

Scared History 

Many people are clueless as to why Friday the 13th is considered unlucky and I am one of them. I don't even know why the number 13 itself is "unlucky." But I am reminded of the notion everywhere I go. All of the casinos in Las Vegas claim they have no 13th floor. The hotel elevators omit the number "13," and skyscrapers all across the country are the same way. 

Where does the suspicion and paranoia come from? 

Many people refer Jesus Christ's Crucifixion. According to Cecil Adams's "Why Is The Number 13 Considered Unlucky," many English sources "from the 1890's onward" posit that the number 13 is unlucky because of Judas was the 13th member at the dinner table. Jesus was also crucified on a Friday.

 

In a Different Light 

There are many cultures who don't consider 13 an unlucky number. In fact, it's quite the opposite. 

In China, the pronunciation of 13 sounds something like "shisan," which roughly  means "definitely vibrant." Many people actually welcome the number 13 as a good omen. Hotel and skyscraper buildings in China do not omit the 13th floor,  instead, they might omit floors that include the number "4." "Four" in Mandarin sounds like "die."

In Italy, people consider 17, not 13, to be their unlucky number, and in fact, the saying "fare tredici" means to hit the jackpot. Tredici is the Italian word for thirteen. 

So just remember, if you're feeling a little paranoid, just channel your inner Italian. Everything is OK, capisce? *cool hand gesture*

    Get more classic brands back in stock. In the mean time a strawberry cream and watermelon with a side order of blueberry could be your next Friday the 13 the flavor. Thanks for all your care and great vapes.
