The Tumbling Waves of Sunrise from the Sea wrote:Friday the thirteenth!
The bad luck day where I live is Tuesday the thirteenth.
"En las culturas de España, Grecia y algunos de los países de América Latina, como Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, Perú, Venezuela y Colombia, se considera el martes 13 un día de mala suerte."
But be careful today the rest of you!

Why Tuesday?

I thought Friday the thirteenth was based on Good Friday and there being 13 at that dinner. Although, based on that logic, Judas should have been the one killed first, because he was the first to leave the table. On the other hand, when has logic ever factored into things?

I found the following on a blog about Mexico.

QUOTE

Friday is arguably considered unlucky because Christ was crucified on a Friday. On one blog, they state there are two different theories as to why in Spanish-speaking countries, Tuesday is considered a bad luck day over Friday. The first theory theorizes that Tuesday is tied to Mars, the Roman god of war. In many European languages with Latin origins, Tuesday is named after Mars. In Spanish, for example, martes is an evolution of the word Mars or Marte.

The other theory contends Tuesday is considered the unluckiest day of the week because Constantinople fell during the Fourth Crusade on April 13, 1204, a Tuesday. And then the Ottoman Turks conquered Constantinople on a Tuesday – May 29, 1453 to be exact..! These attacks further strengthened the idea that Tuesday, Mars’ day, was bad news! As Mexico Bob states, “The Turks overwhelmed the city and anyone caught out in the open or in the streets was killed by Muslim swords and the blood ran ankle deep in the streets and emptied into the sea, turning it red. For the people living there at the time it was the end of the world and it will forever be remembered as “Black Tuesday”. That is why the saying goes “Don’t even go out of your house” when Tuesday falls on the 13th because it is a very unlucky day.” END QUOTE

Lots of nations here in the top thousand for Most Cheerful Citizens. I have nations that are Civil Rights Lovefests and Left Wing Utopias, too, but without exception the lives of their citizens are sheer misery from baby rattle to death rattle. What is your secret, please?

Cheerfulness (which used to be known as 'happiness') is a tricky thing. It seems to be correlated with Civil Rights, but not directly, as you can have a high civil rights and low happiness.

In general I would say try to avoid interfering in citizens personal lives, and make sure they have opportunities for recreation - a heavy handed 'nanny state', even one with good intentions, seems to produce a humorless, unhappy population.

For example, New Sade is a lawless wasteland with an astronomical crime rate, but even we are listed in the top 10% for happiest/cheerful citizens.
