I would like to say that people who are superstitious avoid travelling on unlucky-numbered days (e.g. 13th). To express this idea, should I say "days of unlucky numbers" or "days with unlucky numbers"?

Thank you!

    I would say neither. The problem is not with the day, but with the date.
    Some people do not like to travel when the date includes unlucky numbers.

    Sorry for reviving an old thread but just now I came across an English grammar question that looks exactly like this:

    I hate travelling on days ____ unlucky numbers.

    We are required to fill in a preposition, but there is no answer provided.
