me being a horror movie addict loves the date "friday the 13th" because i always go and rent a bunch of horror movies and have a horror movie marathon at home with junk food and hang out.. i havent picked out the movies this year but its just a tradition i started about 11 years ago.. and we have 3 friday the 13ths this year! feb, march and november!! do you celebrate friday the 13th by watching horror movies? do you avoid doing anything on this day because you think its unlucky? i have always had great luck on friday the 13th personally.. or do you even take note of it?

I hadn't realised that it was Friday the 13th until I read this post lol. I don't celebrate this day but hey I might consider doing it next time as it sounds cool and gives me a reason to celebrate. I might spread this new idea around my house lol.I am not much of a horror movie addict but its fun at times to get the adrenaline pumping.

hehe I watch horror movies only when I have somebody around. I also know a friend who is totally into horror stuff and he says he prefers books to movies. My bf just laughs at me when I speak of ghosts :|

I really don't think about it unless someone mentions it...unfortunately today started with seeing the plane crash in Buffalo NY...makes you stop and think about the fact that it might be unlucky!

I always love Friday the 13th. It is my lucky day! My husband and I were married on Friday the 13th, and he always brings me flowers when this day rolls around. My sons first birthday was also on Friday the 13th. My wedding day was the luckiest day of my life. My husband and I didn't have a choice on the matter since my father was going to pass away, so we choose the first day our schedules would allow. We were married in the hospital because my father was in the ICU. IT was beautiful and perfect. Oh yeah and my dad was also born on the 13th as well.

I am not really that superstitious so I don't really worry about Friday the 13th. I like to celebrate it when I remember LOL I don't know why but I keep thinking today is Saturday.

No I don't celebrate Friday the 13th by watching horror movies. It is just an ordinary day. It just happened the 13th day falls on a Friday. For me it really don't mean a thing. I'm fond of watching horror movies and I watched this kind of film anytime I feel like watching to. I don't think Friday the 13th is an unlucky day. It is just one of those ordinary days that sometimes I don't even noticed that day 13 falls on a Friday.

Ugh..I was born on one such day. It hasn't been bad for me so far. Watching a horror movie sounds cool..I happen to be gothic. Will try a ritual or something this year.

some people say its really unlucky for them, but i think it depends on what sort of things you believe in. i dont believe in friday 13th no real reason why just because dont see how it is true, i know so many people born on friday 13th and they are nice people and i am lucky to know them. yesterday at work, as i work in childcare, the children did do some craft to do with black friday but nothing real serious as they dont really understand it.

ha ha ha ha ha... you actually take the effort to mark out the Friday 13s on your calendar? To me, it is just another work day. A long work day at the office just like any other day. No difference whether it is a 13 or not.

You are a rare find among the people I know who love horror flicks. And definitely the first to actually celebrate Friday the 13th. AND one who actually plans and organizes horror marathons for that day too!
