Friday the 13th

Fellow sailors,

We all know that a tendency towards superstitions have been rife amongst seafarers for time immemorial. Some in true belief, some just going along with others, and some in just plain fun. Personally, I fall in the "fun" category and I ask you the following with a smile.

Given that it is a sort of "taboo" to leave port on a Friday, does this only relate to your home port or is this taboo extended to mean any port in whichy you may have stopped along the way to your destination? Furthermore, would the Friday in question being Friday the 13th have any further bearing on this decision?
