Entertainment And News, Self

It doesn't have to be unlucky, silly.

It's Friday the 13th and we all know what that means ... Unlucky occurrences like tripping over your shoelaces, knocking over glasses and waking up after your alarm are just a few of the possible horrors the superstitious among us believe are likely to happen on this infamously bad luck ridden day.

What better way is there to counter anything bad these days than by turning the situation on its head with some funny memes?

But before we get to the Friday the 13th memes, how did this unfortunate day get its tricky reputation for being unlucky?

Some claim the phenomenon known as triskaidekaphobia — the fear of the number 13 — originates with New Testament, as Judas Iscariot, who would later go on to betray Jesus, was the last — and thirteenth — to arrive for the Last Supper.

And Norse legend holds that "evil and turmoil were first introduced in the world by the appearance of the treacherous and mischievous god Loki at a dinner party in Valhalla. He was the 13th guest, upsetting the balance of the 12 gods already in attendance."

It is also possible that the publication of Thomas W. Lawson's book "Friday, the Thirteenth: A Novel" was the culprit behind this most superstitious of days. The novel tells the story of a broker who travels to Wall Street to create a panic on Friday the thirteenth.

Sure, all of this may be juvenile. But even today there are still over a million cases in the United States alone of people being petrified of this day. It is so prevalent that flights have been canceled, people have called out of sick at work and some even prepare for the end of the world. So the stigma remains.

What can you do to avoid all the bad luck?

Well, there have been plenty of superstitious remedies that people have come up with. Salt, a lucky rabbit's foot, a blessed crystal are just a few that people have used to ward off evil spirits.

But really, there is no telling what works and what doesn't. The power of the mind is probably your best bet, positive thinking can go a long way.

To that end, here are 50 funny Friday the 13th memes to help you turn that bad luck upside down.
