There is something about the date 26th; something that’s not very nice. The most nail-biting tragedies the world has seen have taken place on the 26th. And, if the vibrations felt on the Earth surface yesterday (October 26, 2015) are also to be considered, the date 26th continues to be a bad news.

Starting from this year, if we wind our clocks little back in time, you will be astonished to know that some of the most horrifying of catastrophes took place on this date. It is almost like the number 26th is synonymous with the term disaster. Now, while it is just a freakish coincidence that weirdly enough still continues to haunt the Earth, some people seem to have started seeing 26th as the new 13th!
