Why are people paranoid on Friday the 13th? There are a lot of stories ranging from the bible to the Canterbury Tales.
One of the most popularised myths attempting to explain the origin of the Friday 13 superstition stems from events on Friday 13 October 1307, when hundreds of Knights Templar were arrested and burnt across France.
This myth caught the public’s attention after it was used by Dan Brown, among other historical fiction writers, and has been peddled endlessly by conspiracy theorists linking the Knights Templar to everything from Freemasonry to the Holy Grail.
Don’t be a Drumpf, enjoy the day and dance your troubles away. Don Pico’s Bistro also has amazing food.
