People are scared of more than just spiders 🕷

Updated: Nov 8, 2020

Some of you might have noticed that today is Friday the 13th… DUN DUN DUUUN ❕


Friday the 13th is considered to be an unlucky day in Western superstition. It happens at least once every year but can occur up to three times in the same year.


A superstition is a widely held but unjustified belief in supernatural causation leading to certain consequences of an action or event.


Personally, I love this day and treat it as a holiday. Similar to Halloween, only without candy, costumes, and children.


What’s left?


The spooky, the scary, the supernatural. 👻


I usually celebrate by watching psychological thriller movies, like “The Number 23” with Jim Carrey.
