Unlucky, in Greek

March 13, 2007

Today in Greece is unlucky. Tuesday the 13th is the Greek version of our Friday the 13th. Wikipedia says, “In the case of Greece, Tuesday, April 13, 1204 was the date that Constantinople was sacked by the crusaders of the fourth crusade. The first ever fall of the richest then Christian city, and the looting that followed, allegedly gave Tuesday 13 its bad meaning.”
