Come celebrate this unlucky day at the Farm. The events are suspiciously being kept under wraps, but you can be sure that things are going to get freaky at the Farm! The goats will be on the roof, and the zombies will be feeling their oats tonight, for sure. Maybe you’ll fall into the silage pit, or you’ll get pulled-over on the way, or you’ll fall in love with the wrong farmer! It does not look good, but we invite all brave souls to don their VIP wristbands and jump in line for Friday the 13th at SFF!
We all know Friday the 13th is unlucky, and any bad things that happen today should naturally be blamed on that. There’s even a term for fearing Friday the 13th – friggatriskaidekaphobia.
But, it wasn’t always considered unlucky. It was only in the 19th century that Friday the 13th became a “thing” that people spoke about. However, the roots of the superstition go further back. Some hold that 12 is a complete number – 12 signs of the Zodiac, 12 tribes of Israel, etc. – so 13, one over, is unlucky.
Some even think that if 13 people sit down to dinner, one will surely die, which stems from the Last Supper. It doesn’t help that Jesus was crucified on a Friday, either.
Sometimes Friday the 13th even has a full moon (spooky), which is pretty rare. It won’t happen again until 2049.
