But before you go creeping yourself out, find out the truth about Friday the 13th.
First, it's not that rare. It happens at least once a year and as many as three times.

Studies have also found that the rate of accidents is no greater on Friday the 13th than any other day.
So don't be scared of being unlucky, it's no different than any other day.
