Today is Friday the 13th.. Uhhhh!! I know… Many people won’t even acknowledge the date, other love the scary vibes and use it as the perfect pretence to add some drama and innocent spookiness to daily life ☠️🖤
If you’ve ever wondered, Friday the 13th is considered a particularly spooky day due to a combination of historical, cultural, and superstitious beliefs. Here are a few reasons why:
- Religious significance: In Christianity, Friday is associated with the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, which is considered an unlucky day. Additionally, the number 13 is traditionally associated with Judas Iscariot, the disciple who betrayed Jesus.
- Norse mythology: In Norse mythology, 13 is associated with the mischievous god Loki, who was the 13th guest at a banquet in Valhalla. He instigated the events that led to the death of Balder, the god of light and joy.
- Historical events: There have been several unfortunate events that occurred on Friday the 13th throughout history. For example, the Knights Templar were arrested and executed on Friday, October 13th, 1307.
- Superstitions: Many people believe that Friday the 13th brings bad luck. This superstition has been reinforced by various fictional works, movies, and urban legends.

While these beliefs may seem irrational to some, they have contributed to the perception of Friday the 13th as a spooky and unlucky day. Of course not everyone subscribes to these beliefs, and many people simply view it as any other day. Me? I love it, and I always take the chance to watch scary movies, and get cozy under the blankest eating something yummy!
