Old joke recycled yearly makes no calendrical sense, as Halloween never falls on the 13th of the month. For those who are pondering whether it’s really been 666 years since Halloween last fell on a Friday the 13th, we would point out that the mid-autumnal celebration we know as Halloween does not date back nearly that far (. to the year 1352 or earlier). The word Halloween (or Hallowe’en ) itself originated in the mid-18th century, and the first appearances of the term All Hallows’ Eve, from which the word Halloween was derived, date only to the mid-16th century.
