Today is Friday the 13th. Here’s what netizens are posting on this day
Friday is generally the day that people look forward to as it marks an end of a work week and opens the door to a relaxing weekend. Today will be the same for many, unless they have friggatriskaidekaphobia – the irrational fear of Friday when it falls on the 13th day of a month. Are you someone who is not a fan of this infamous date too? Then it is a day to stay away from social media. Why, you ask? People have now taken to various platforms to share different posts related to the day – so much so that the words “Friday the 13th” are also trending on Twitter.
Though the root of this day that is long considered to be a harbinger of bad luck is unclear, there are several theories that try explaining why this particular day and date combination is considered ominous and spooky by many. Also, what add on to this fear are the stories of real-life unfortunate incidents that took place on this supposedly unlucky day.
The popularity, or in this case unpopularity, of the date is such that it has also inspired a successful horror film franchise with the name “Friday the 13th”.
