Tuesday is considered the unluckiest day during the week for
the Greek people. It was on this day on Tuesday May 29th 1453 that the
unimaginable happened and the city of Constantinople fell to the Osman
Tribe, the "Ottoman Turks".
It is often said that businesses that open on this day
have a black mark against them, and many Greeks who believe in this
superstition will not venture into a new business on a Tuesday.
The the number 13 is considered lucky by Greeks in the
setting when it stands alone as can be seen from the previous weeks writing,
see The Number 13.
However, when Tuesday and 13 are placed together they are
considered unlucky in the Greek culture. So Greeks will watch out for Tuesday the
13th not Friday the
13th. It is the combination of the date
"Tuesday" with the number "Thirteen" that is considered
very unlucky to the Greek people.
