LeBron James, Ricky Gervais & Others Tweet On Friday The 13th
FRIDAY THE 13TH TWEETS
For the first time in 11 years, the 13th of October has fallen on a Friday, and Twitter is here for it. “Love #FridayThe13th!! Halloween is coming and I can’t wait! 👻🎃🙀,” the star basketball player wrote. “Nothing bad will happen just because it’s Friday the 13th. That’s primitive, superstitious nonsense. And anyway, God will protect you,” quipped Gervais.

And PETA used the day to remind folks that black cats are less likely to be adopted because of the superstition that they are unlucky, and encouraged cat-lovers to adopt black cats.
