As the new year approaches, everyone is hoping for a happy 2023.

For superstitious natures, however, there can be a little hiccup – today, that’s just the way it is Friday the 13th.

A date that occasionally instills a slight level of anxiety in even the sanest of us, the unfortunate associations of both the date and the number 13 are well known.

From horror movies to meme culture, dating is often associated with bad luck, and while it only happened once last year, that’s not always the case.

So how many times will we have to grapple with Friday the 13th in 2023?

Here’s everything you need to know.

When is next Friday the 13th?

Today, January 13, 2023, is Friday the 13th and we’re treated to another one in October.

As such, it might be worth avoiding going under ladders and keeping an eye out for black cats.

How often does Friday the 13th occur in 2023?

The good news for all the superstitious is that Friday 13th will only happen twice in 2023 – today and Friday 13th October.

Even though the date will appear twice next year, anyone who dreads the date will be happy to know that in 2025 it will only appear once. However, in 2026 we’ll see Friday the 13th three times – so pay attention.

Here is the full list of upcoming dates:

Where did Friday the 13th get its reputation from?

Although the origins of the date are not entirely clear, many have speculated that it may date back to the crucifixion of Jesus, who was widely believed to have been betrayed on a Friday, and 13 people were present at the Last Supper.

Other theories also suggest that it could date back to 1307 when King Philip IV of France was tortured and burned alive by hundreds of Knights Templar.
