Ed Hubbard, a spokesman for witchschool.com, says because so many people think Friday the 13th is unlucky, its a great day for casting spells because everyone believes in magic today.
Hubbard says 2200 witches around the world plan to capitalize on the extra magic in the air by doing a good luck ritual at 1:13 p.m. local time or, as he calls it 13:13.
The ritual will focus on lighting candles, but he says some witches may also put some crystals in a special web that currently includes 300,000 crystals placed in secret places all over the world.
Some people might find the spell and Friday the 13th fears in general to be a bunch of hocus pocus but Hubbard says its important to be aware of the unlucky day because, in his words, What people resist, persists.
