It's September 13 and a Friday -- Friday, the 13th to be precise -- and the internet is freaking out.

A school of thought believes the fear of bad luck on Friday the 13th stems from the Biblical period. Some also believe it has its roots in anti-paganism.

The fear of the bad luck originated with the Last Supper and crucifixion, and the superstition surrounding the day may have arisen in the Middle ages.

The Last Supper was attended by Jesus Christ and his 12 disciples. A total of 13 people attended the supper on Maundy Thursday, the night before his crucifixion by Roman soldiers on Good Friday.

This Friday, to a large of the Twitterverse, is extra spooky owing to a Full Moon -- which will appear for the first time in over a decade. Doubly fearful and quadruply doubtful, the internet has been freaking out since morning.

Several light-hearted posts also made way to the Twitterverse.

Have a nice day, everyone!
