Some days you wonder if your number is up. And then you get over it. Might be harder to get over it though if you were booked on this one. A Finnair flight, the last ever flight of their Flt 666 terminating in HEL !

Might want to throw some salt over your shoulder.

I used to be superstitious but now I only fear the unknown and have learned enough magic to keep danger away. It's childish to fear ghosts when one has a rabbit foot for protection.

Except for the ghost of the rabbit that got its foot chopped off...

The exact history is unclear, but one story is that on Friday the 13th the then-Pope had the Knights Templar attacked and killed throughout Europe and the Middle East. King Philip of France was also involved somehow. As usual, the victors in a war write the history, so we may never know exactly what happened.

Yes to the history of the Templar Knight slaughter as the reason.
