While some may say that having bad luck on Friday the 13th is just a common superstition, junior Kennedy Graham has experienced bad luck first handedly.

“My birthday is on the 13th of June and has happened to be on a Friday a few times in the past,” Graham said. “However, this does not mean that I get good luck on this day.”

Graham has had some unlucky events happen to her on Friday the 13th.

Her 13th birthday was a prime example of a time she experienced bad luck.

“My 13th birthday party was on June 13, 2014,” she said. “I had some friends over, and we were running around my neighborhood playing hide and seek. When I was running back to my house, I ran through my neighbor’s yard, and I stepped on something.”

This was just the beginning of her bad luck on this day.

“After stepping on my neighbors’ sharp sprinkler head, I fell down in pain,” Graham said. “When I looked at my foot, it was cut open and bleeding profusely.”

This is not the only time Kennedy has had bad luck on this day.
Contrary to being a mostly “A” student, Graham has had some bad test-taking luck on Friday the 13th’s.

“In seventh grade, I took a social studies test on Friday the 13th and ended up with a ‘C’ on it,” she said. “I usually am a good test taker and get ‘A’s.”

Graham said she doesn’t know why she has bad luck on this day, but she knows other people seem to too, simply because of the superstition associated with it.

“People have bad luck on this day because they believe it’s a ‘bad luck day’ so they think they will have bad luck,” Graham said.

This year on Friday, Oct. 13, Graham says she is prepared to steer clear of anything that might put her in harm’s way.
