Most people know that the number 13 is plagued with a bad reputation, but is there any truth to it? Let's take a look at how this became an unlucky number.
WHY 13 IS UNLUCKY AT THE TABLE: BIBLICAL ORIGINS
Indeed, according to popular belief, having 13 people gathered around the table may bring bad luck and can even predict a fatal event. This superstition was born from a passage in the Bible referring to the Lord's Supper, where Jesus shares a meal with his 12 apostles. It was after this famous meal that Jesus was betrayed by Judas. The latter was then arrested before being crucified.
Since then, it is customary to say that having 13 people at the table is bad luck. If this happens, it is said that the youngest of the table will die soon because Jesus was the youngest of the Lord's Supper and was destined to die after this meal.
