    Have you ever gotten into an elevator of a hotel and noticed the buttons went from 12 to 14, skipping the number 13? It’s not as if the 13th floor is actually missing, though -- the 13th floor was just named the 14th floor. Believe it or not, this more common than you may think. Or gone to a casino and saw sevens everywhere?

    For the month of March, I’ll be looking at the stories behind common superstitions and symbols of luck.

    I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind Lucky Numbers.
