    Apparently, it's the most common combination of number and day-of-the-week that actually occurs. Something like that, anyway.

    it's because of the order of the templars:

    ...The Templars' success was tied closely to the success of the Crusades. When the Holy Land was lost and the Templars suffered crushing defeats, support for the Order's existence faded. Rumors about the Templars' secret initiation ceremony created mistrust, and King Philip IV of France, deeply in debt to the Order, began pressuring Pope Clement V to take action. On Friday, October 13, 1307, King Philip had many of the Order's members in France arrested, tortured into "confessions", and burned at the stake.[5] In 1312, Pope Clement, under continuing pressure from King Philip, forcibly disbanded the entire Order. The sudden disappearance of a major part of the European infrastructure gave rise to speculation and legends, which have kept the name "Templar" alive in modern fiction.... ( from wikipedia, didn't want to explain it myself...^^)

    they got arrestred on a friday the 13th, thats all...
    since that day friday the 13th is considered a bad day...

    Actually, they say that because of the fear of Friday the 13th, alot of money is lost by people who won't do business on that day.

    And yeah, Kiamnennieh got it right about how some people say Friday the 13th is unlucky because of what happened to the Knight Templars, the supposed guardians of the Holy Grail and holy bloodline.
