Friday the 13th has long been regarded as an unlucky day but it has gained so much prominence over the years that many superstitious people literally change their schedule according to the day.

The superstition surrounding this day may have arisen in the Middle Ages, "originating from the story of Jesus' last supper and crucifixion" in which there were 13 individuals present in the Upper Room on the 13th of Nisan Maundy Thursday, the night before his death on Good Friday

Thirteen guests are believed to have attended the Last Supper, the night before Jesus was killed and Judas Iscariot, the disciple who betrayed Jesus, is considered to have been the 13th guest.

Twitteratis had a field day making jokes and memes about the 'spooky' day. Here are some of those...'It's Friday the 13th today people!'
