Friday the 13th is for the superstitious. The day has been steeped in fear for centuries, with a connection to ill-fated dinner parties long past. In Norse mythology, the number 13 was traced to an uninvited thirteenth guest, the trickster Loki, who brought death and destruction to the table.
Whether the trepidation comes from stories people heard when they were young, or began much later with slasher flicks bearing the day’s name, Friday the 13th has been a perceived danger lurking in the shadows of society’s consciousness for quite some time. Those who believe have a lengthy list of things to be wary of on the supposedly cursed day.

While some believe these practices should be followed all 365 days of the year, there are others who only avoid sidewalk cracks or dining with 13 guests on Friday the 13th.
