According to NationalDayCalendar.com (one of our "go-to" websites), the story behind this day started with Anne's alarm clock failing to go off, which created "a domino effect of bad luck events throughout the day.  Since the day happened to be on Friday the 13th, the observance takes place on the first Friday the 13th each year".

Today's the day to remember: it's not your fault. You were late or couldn't do that thing because of slow traffic or that guy who talked too long. Blame them.

Here's the story.
