I honestly don't.
Google it.
But I do know that it should be Monday the 13th.
Because Fridays are the best days of the week,
and Monday's suck a**. It makes more sense.

Friday
Quote:
Friday has been considered an unlucky day at least since the 14th century's The Canterbury Tales,[3] and many other professions have regarded Friday as an unlucky day to undertake journeys or begin new projects. Black Friday has been associated with stock market crashes and other disasters since the 1800s.[6][7] It has also been suggested that Friday has been considered an unlucky day because, according to Christian scripture and tradition, Jesus was crucified on a Friday.[8]



13
Quote:
In numerology, the number twelve is considered the number of completeness, as reflected in the twelve months of the year, twelve hours of the clock, twelve gods of Olympus, twelve tribes of Israel, twelve Apostles of Jesus, the 12 Descendants of Muhammad Imams, etc., whereas the number thirteen was considered irregular, transgressing this completeness. There is also a superstition, thought by some to derive from the Last Supper or a Norse myth, that having thirteen people seated at a table will result in the death of one of the diners.
It’s because on Friday the 13th of October 1307, King Philip of France had the Knights Templars rounded up and arrested for allegedly denying Christ, spitting on the cross, sodomy, and worshiping Satan. Templar headquarters in France were all raided and Jacques de Molay was arrested along with his leading knights. Some think the King of France made up the charges in order to claim the Templar’s wealth, but others, including Anton LaVey, Aleister Crowley and other prominent occultists believe the accusations were authentic.
The majority of the Knights Templar escaped and vanished and their massive amounts of treasure vanished with them. Evidence suggests that the Knights Templar created Freemasonry and continued their occult practices and business ventures under this cloak. Their knowledge of fractional reserve banking was carried on within the Mystery Schools, ultimately leading up to the creation of the Federal Reserve banking system by the Illuminati in 1913.
