Friday the 13th Fun and Facts!

 

Muahahahahahaa!  <- that’s supposed to be a super spooky ghost laugh.  Ok, are you totally frightened?

It’s almost Halloween!  Halloween is a fun holiday that marks the real start of the holiday season with the best holiday of all just around the corner.  So I thought I’d help get you in the seasonal mood with some fun facts about today’s Friday the 13th.

The fear of Friday the 13th is also called friggatriskaidekaphobia or paraskevidekatriaphobia. Now say that 10 times really fast!

Friggatriskaidekaphobia comes from Frigg, the Norse goddess of wisdom after whom Friday is named, and the Greek words triskaideka, meaning 13, and phobia, meaning fear. Paraskevidekatriaphobia is also derived from Greek: paraskeví translates as Friday, and dekatria is another way of saying 13.

Fittingly, Alfred Hitchcock Was Born on the 13th.  The master of suspense was born on August 13, 1899 – so Friday, August 13, 1999 would have been his 100th birthday. He made his directorial debut in 1922 with a movie called Number 13. Unfortunately, the film was doomed from the start and never got off the ground due to financial troubles.

Other celebrities and well-known personalities born on a Friday the 13th include actors Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen; novelist and playwright, Samuel Beckett; and former President of Cuba, Fidel Castro.

Now, BOO’s ready for some Hallow’s Eve fun?!?!?
