Summary
National Blame Someone Else Day is observed on the first Friday The 13th of The Year.

Today is the first Friday 13th of the year so bad things may happen. In this case, this observance is about self-preservation and adopting the age-old strategy of pinning the blame for any misfortunes on someone else!

But why is Friday 13th seen as unlucky?

Friday the 13th has been considered an unlucky day for many centuries and is believed to have originated from several sources, including:

  1. Christianity: Some believe that Friday the 13th is unlucky because of the connection to the Last Supper and the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, which is said to have taken place on a Friday.

  2. Norse mythology: Friday was named after the goddess Frigg and was considered a day of bad luck in Norse mythology.

  3. The number 13: The number 13 has been considered unlucky for many centuries, with some believing it to be an unlucky number due to its association with the 13 guests at the Last Supper.

  4. Superstition: Over time, the idea that Friday the 13th is an unlucky day has become a widely accepted superstition, with people avoiding making important decisions, traveling, or doing anything else that might bring bad luck on that day.

While the superstition surrounding Friday the 13th is not based in any scientific fact, it remains a widely held belief in many cultures and continues to be seen as an unlucky day by many people today.
