(中翻英)有關Friday the 13th---20點

因為用網路的翻都是照字面直接翻譯,都看不懂,有大大懂英文可以幫我翻譯嗎??(如果有單字打錯請多多包涵囉!)

The exact origin of superstitions about Friday the 13th is unknown. However, superstitious fears about this date have grown and spread overtheyears thanks, in part, to unfrtunate events. In the eighteenth century, a ship---the HMS Friday---which launched on a Friday the 13th. disappeared at sea. In 1945, people watched in disbelief on a Friday the 13th when the first atom bomb was tested. On a Friday the 13th in 1992, an earthpuake in Turkey killed thousands of people.

It is surprising, though, that the number thirteen is considered unlucky in the United States. The country was originally divided into thirteen states. On the dollar bill there is a picture of an incomplete pyramid with thirteen steps. The bald eagle carries an olive branch in one of its claws with thirteen arrows, and above its head there are thirteen stars.

In different cultures, other numbers are believed to be unlucky. In Japan, Korea, and China, for example, people consider the number four to be unlucky because the pronunciation of the word \'four.\' Many hotels in these countries do not have fourth floors. Also, people do not give gifts in multiples of four.

There are some numbers that are thought to bring good luck. In many western cultures, people believe that seven is a lucky number, while many Chinese people believe that the luckiest number is eight. Many people also believe significant dates in their lives---such as birthdays and anniversaries---are lucky.
