Friday the 13th is considered to be an unlucky day. What is unlucky about it, no one knows. It is just unlucky. You cannot start something new, like a new job or take a trip on this day, or you are doomed to fail. Neither can you have your hair cut nor give birth. Myths such as these have been floating around across generations and continue to do so even today.
But these are just superstitions, and we can confirm that starting a new venture on this day will bring you no bad luck. Several films that released on Friday the 13th have performed exceptionally well at the box office. Even if these are not the best of films (blame the makers, not the day), they have been a superhit among fans.
Take a look at 13 movies that have released on Friday the 13th and yet have been successful:
3. Grand Masti
5. Ragini MMS
7. Peepli Live
11. Eat Pray Love
12. The Expendables
So as you can see, it is perfectly safe to start something new on Friday the 13th. Just go ahead and do the best you can!
