Put your summer blacks on and count your unlucky stars because today is Friday the 13th.... What does this mean? Lots of scary and not scary things--just read on.

This holiday likely became a thing around the 19th century--but some people believe that the myth has Biblical origins--maybe because Jesus was crucified on a Friday and there were 13 guests at the Last Supper, the night before his crucifixion.

The first reference to an unlucky Friday the 13th came in an 1869 biography of the composer Rossini, who died on Friday November 13, 1868.

Fear of the day is called, technically, friggatriskaidekaphobia--Frigg, the Norse goddess of wisdom after whom Friday is named, and the Greek words triskaideka, meaning thirteen, and phobia, meaning fear, or paraskevidekatriaphobia--whihc is derived from Greek--paraskeví translates to Friday, and dekatria to thirteen. 

Millions of people fear this number, and this day! Lots of high-rise office buildings, hotels, and hospitals skip numbering the 13th floor the 13th--and lots consider having 13 people at the dinner table to be a welcoming of bad luck--but Mark Twain was allegedly once invited to be the 13th guest at a dinner party. He went to the dinner, despite a superstitious friend's warning, and reported that, "It was bad luck. They only had food for twelve."

Typically, three of these occur each year.

A few really good celebrities were born on Friday the 13, including Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Julia Louis Dreyfus! 

A witches coven consists of thirteen members.

Charles Manson, Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy and Jack the Ripper ll all have thirteen letters in their names.

Gather your scariest friends, put on your blackest outfit, light some candles, and invite twelve guests to a scary party.
