Freaky Friday: First Friday the 13th full moon in 95 years!

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Friday the 13th is widely considered an unlucky day. But for the first time in many years, Friday the 13th is even freakier!

For the first time since 1919, a full moon fell on Friday the 13th - and it won't happen again until Friday August 13, 2049.

It is not clear when the date became known as being sinister, but more a combination of beliefs in Western culture that 13 is an unlucky number and Friday is, too.

Lucky for Chicago, though, it looks like Friday the 13th, 2014 will be a beautiful day with low humidity and lows in the mid 70s.
