No one is exactly sure when or why Friday the 13th became known as an unlucky day. A well-known Tom Hanks film would have us believe it’s tied to the history of the Knights Templar and Freemasons. Aspects of various religions lend mystery, suspicion or fear to the number 13. A popular novel of the early 19th Century (entitled simply “Friday, the Thirteenth”) may have given widespread popularity to the superstition when its main character took advantage of the mythical date to create a panic on Wall Street.
Whatever the origin, only the most non-superstitious among us look at a Friday the 13th as being simply another day. The rest of us, while perhaps not fundamentally changing the way we lead our lives, seem to tread just a bit more cautiously those 2 or 3 times a year when Friday and the 13th of a month coincide.
Some people might act like that toward the idea of renting a self storage unit. They are wary of keeping any of their possessions stored outside of their home, and by extension outside of their direct control. They worry paying a monthly fee for storage rental won’t provide enough value to justify
