Flying foxes on tree branches
Have you heard of Knights Templar? You might already have if you've watched the movie: National Treasure. The Templars don't exist today anymore.
Here's a short story, this is not a fictitious tale. It was on October 13, 1307, Friday. The King of France (King Philip IV) summoned his army to arrest the Templars and forced them to admit heresy in the "Order". Partly because of jealousy and partly because the King of France owed a huge debt to the Templar - a loan to fund the war with England.
The Templars were being accused of blaspheming, denying Christ, homosexual acts, obscene kissing, devil worshiping etc. Of course, their confessions were induced by torture. As punishments, they were burned alive, some were set fire onto their soles so the bones fell out of the skin, some were suspended in a topsy turvy manner. In fact, the Templars did nothing as declare by the King of France. The Templars were merely bankers and protectors to Christian pilgrims. In order to save their own lives, they since seeked refuge under the Freemasonry. Freemasonry is a secret society that still exists today.
Friday the 13th was since viewed as a tragic day.
In the Gregorian calender, there will be at least one Friday the 13th and a maximum of three Fridays the 13th. Should the 1st fall on a Sunday of the month, 13th will be a Friday.
