In Ireland, Friday the 13th is lucky if you tie an onion to your belt and swing a black cat around your head. In Scotland, it's lucky if it lands on a leap year or in a month defined by Brigadoon. Or something.

Friday the 13th occurs when the thirteenth day of a month falls on a Friday, which superstition holds to be a day of bad luck. In the Gregorian calendar, this day occurs at least once, but at most three times a year. Any month's 13th day will fall on a Friday if the month starts on a Sunday.
