“The fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia (Frigga being the name of the Norse goddess for whom “Friday” is named and triskaidekaphobia meaning fear of the number thirteen)” And, in Spanish speaking and Greek countries, it’s actually “Tuesday the 13th” that freaks them out. – thank you Wikipedia for this awesome trivia.

But Friday the 13th, for me, is one of my favorite days. My love of Friday the 13th isn’t just because I like weird and scary stuff from time to time. It’s because although Friday the 13th is supposed to be full of bad luck and darkness, I almost always seem to have a great day. Imagine how ecstatic I was to find out that my future/now husband was born on the 13th? He’s my lucky 13. Well, aside from that weekend we spent in the Berkshires with a convicted murderer stalking us…or wait, was that a movie? Either way, we lived to tell the tale.

But today, I’m going to the root of the spookiest of days and sharing a list of my favorite freaky movies to get you in the Friday the 13th spirit. Why risk falling victim to the unlucky energy? Stay home, make some popcorn and have a Friday the 13th Movie Marathon! See where to get my favorite scary movies shown above & then some…
