It’s that spooky coincidence again: Friday the 13th. The number 13 is considered to be unlucky. If you are truly afraid of the number 13, you have Triskaidekaphobia.
Believe it or not, Friday used to be considered the most unlucky day of the week. Shocking, right? Today it is celebrated every week; it’s the end of both the school and work week for most people and that's enough to celebrate. Regardless, Friday plus 13 was considered a spooky combo. Over time, Friday the 13th changed from bad luck to scary movies and shows. A lot of this stems from the Friday the 13th franchise. If you are superstitious and fear crossing black cats, walking under ladders and spilling salt, you can stay home. To avoid boredom, grab a copy of one of these films on Thursday and enjoy the spookiness of this day without leaving your home. Just remember to keep your phone close; you never know who may be lurking through the night.
