Though others will say that's just silly superstition.
Superstition or not, today, Friday the 13th, isn't just a Full Moon, and a potentially unlucky day (for those who might have triskaidekaphobia). According to the Free Press, it's a fantastic day to win the lottery.
The Freep reports:
While some people might spend the day trying to avoid walking under a ladder or breaking mirrors, Friday the 13th has historically been a lucky day for Michigan Lottery Mega Millions Players. Twelve lottery players have won more than $29.5 million in big prizes over the past five years.
There you go. Pull up your big kid pants, bravely go to your local lotto retailer, and try your luck on this unluckiest of days. Afterall, the full moon-Friday the 13th pairing won't happen again until August 13, 2049.
