As the holiday song says, “The weather outside is frightful”—and so are some of the humans. Superstitions about #FridayThe13th last all year and black cats can be targets of abuse from cruel people. Please keep your black (or black & white) cats safe and keep them indoors. pic.twitter.com/e9pMbhHLnh

The fear of the day gained more prominence as it coincided with the last full moon of the year on Thursday. Called the Long Night's Moon, the full moon was at its peak on 12/12 at 12.12 am. Those who believe in the power of numerology, they think it is a great coincidence. It is also known as Cold Moon, Long Night Moon and December Moon
