It’s Friday the 13th, Bad Energy Stay Far Away!
The first and only Friday the 13th of 2021 is here, and the timelines are already flooding with superstitious scenarios.
The day is considered an unlucky day in Western superstition where bad things are, more often than not, expected to happen. Friday the 13th happens at least once every year but can occur up to three times in the same year, like in 2015.
Fun fact: Friday the 13th only occurs if a month begins on a Sunday.
Also, did you know this day is so superstitious, most buildings lack a 13th floor? Now you know!
Happy Friday the 13th, I guess? Check out some hilarious reactions below.
Tomorrow is Friday the 13th and you couldn’t care less because shit happens to you every day. pic.twitter.com/YzOqB0S1cE
