Question:
Why is Friday the thirteenth considered to be bad luck?
Answer:
The number thirteen represents Judas, the thirteenth to arrive at the Last Supper. Friday by itself is unlucky because it was the day of Christ’s Crucifixion. Years ago, the British set out to disprove these superstitions. They named a new vessel HMS Friday, laid her keel on a Friday, and then sent her to sea on a Friday that fell on the thirteenth. The plan backfired: neither ship nor crew was ever heard from again. Then, of course, there’s Apollo 13.

  • Benefits of Grapes

    Rejuvenates the Skin

    Certain organic acids that are present in grapes facilitate the rejuvenation of skin cells. Grapes contain vitamin C which is necessary for collagen formation. Collagen forms up to 70% of the dry weight of human skin and is vital for the growth of cells and blood vessels and for providing strength and firmness to the skin. Moreover, grapes make the skin free from diseases by removing toxins from the body. Resveratrol present in grapevines protects the skin against harsh weather. It also rejuvenates the skin and reduces discolouration.
