If your childhood was anything like mine was, then you probably grew up hearing all the scary stories and urban legends surrounding the supposedly unlucky date of Friday the 13. The concept that this day somehow causes a person to incur bad fortune has permeated pop culture so much that there has even been a movie (plus many sequels and questionable crossovers) with the same title. If your due date happens to be around that time frame, then you'll probably be interested to learn about old wives tales about being born on Friday the 13. Who knows? Maybe being born on this colloquially cursed date might not be so terrible.
Sure, there's plenty of folklore that used to link unexplained events or natural phenomenon with a person's actions or a certain date. But, despite what "Flat Earth" folks would have you believe, many of these long-held beliefs have since been debunked by modern science. Still, it's interesting how these old wives tales and superstitions tend to hold meaning even today. Maybe it's because everyone loves a good mystery — and nothing is as mysterious or miraculous as giving birth. So, no matter where your personal beliefs land on the matter, you can discover some of the more odd myths (and their origins) about babies born on Friday the 13th.
