Somehow a day like today, steeped in superstition, seems like a purrfect excuse to watch Black Butler. While there are many theories as to the origins of Friday the 13th as a day of bad luck, one of the more popular ones is that King Phillip of France who was deeply indebted to the Knights Templar (because they were an international banking institution of their day lending money to countries, monarchs, and other persons of wealth) sent out an order for all the Knights Templar in France to be arrested on Friday, October 13 in 1307. Of those successfully arrested, most were eventually tortured to death. A few weeks later in November, the Pope, Clement V, issued a papal decree to all the monarchs of Europe and the Christian faith to arrest and confiscate the possessions and lands of all Knights Templar wherever they could be found. That Friday the 13th was certainly unlucky for the Knights Templar.
We don’t think Sebastian would be worried about Black Cats crossing his path. What do you think?
