Friday 13th - Unit 13, Origins And Funnies

Friday the 13th, for many a day to be weary of but why? The origins of the fear of Friday the 13th come from the Knights Templar as far back as 1307. The Knights Templar rose to prominence in Europe between 1096 and 1307.  Their downfall came on Friday 13th October 1307.  This date saw the catastrophic destruction of the Knights Templar at the hands of King Philip of France and his puppet Pope Clement V.  Some say this event, in which the Templars were burnt at the stake, gave birth to the superstition associated with Friday 13th. (For reference purposes)
