The origins of this superstition are unclear, but some suggest it has to do with the story of Jesus’ last supper in which 13 individuals were present the night before his death on Good Friday. The fear surrounding the date was exacerbated by the release of the horror franchise, Friday the 13th, which included twelve slasher films.
