Freaky Friday the 13th: Superstitions run high

Posted: Updated:

It's Friday the 13th, and if you're superstitious at all, this day is a spooky one.

Due to past events, the day is considered to be unlucky.  Tupac passed away, Buckingham palace was bombed, and Kitty Genovese was murdered, among other things-all on Friday the 13th.

The fear of the date has an official phobia-Paraskevidekatriaphobia.  Try to say that three times fast.

Many advise not to walk under a ladder, and stay away from black cats. 

Each year there is at least one Friday the 13th on the calendar.

You choose whether to believe in the superstition or not.
