Description

Its Friday the 13th - what better day to get spooky and paranormal, than on Friday the 13th!!!

We talk about historical events on this day.

We also help celebrate some famous birthdays on August 13th!

From our friends at Haunted Walk: https://hauntedwalk.com/news/why-do-we-fear-friday-the-13th/

  + An early example is Thomas W. Lawson’s well-read 1908 novel, “Friday, the Thirteenth“. 
  + The “Friday the 13th” film franchise has made close to a billion dollars in box office revenue (when adjusted for inflation).
  + An often cited study published by the British Medical Journal in 1993 reported that, “the risk of hospital admission as a 
    result of a transport accident may be increased by as much as 52 percent” on Friday the 13th. Yikes!


And from our friends at LiveScience:  https://www.livescience.com/49809-freaky-things-friday-the-13th.html

  + Friggatriskaidekaphobics, beware: Today is the first of three Friday the 13ths this year. (The other two fall in March and November.)
  + This date, of course, is associated with bad luck and superstition, which is why it has its own phobia — 
    "Frigg" was a Norse goddess who originally lent her name to the word that became "Friday," and 
    "triskaidekaphobia" is the fear of the number 13. Statistically speaking, the day is not more dangerous 
    than any other. But even people who don't avoid black cats or fear walking under ladders can have a 
    little fun with Friday the 13th.

Lastly from Readers Digest:  https://www.readersdigest.ca/culture/friday-the-13th-history/

  + What happened on Friday the 13th originally?
    On Friday, October 13, 1307, the French rounded up thousands of Knights Templars and tortured them as heretics. 
    Some believe the date of this massacre sparked our modern-day association of Friday the 13th with bad luck.

  + On Friday, August 13, 2010…
    A 13-year-old boy in Suffolk, England, was struck by lightning. The lightning reportedly hit at 1:13
    or 13:13 in military time. The boy survived unharmed.
