Nov. 13, 2015 is the third of three Friday the 13ths this year. Other dates this year included February 13 and March 13. In 2014, Friday the 13th came along once on June 13. After Friday, we’ll have to wait until May 13, 2016 for the next “unlucky” date.
“Friday the 13th” is also a series of American horror movies that focuses on the fictional character Jason Voorhees.
