For one, it’s unclear why it’s feared. But some historians believe the superstitions surrounding the day came about in the late 19th century.
Airlines even see a dip in ticket sales on these days!
And there’s a way to spot when a “Friday the 13th” is going to come up. Simply put, you can blame Sunday! For the 13th to land on a Friday, the month has to begin on a Sunday.
And try and say this three times fast. The fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia.
