However, it doesn’t matter what happens. The brief madness of this day can be attributed to Anne Moeller from Michigan. She started the trend in 1982 in order to excuse her failures on Friday the 13th. (It was actually her alarm clock’s fault that the alarm didn’t go off. This set off a series of events that led to a lot of bad luck!

This silly, lighthearted day adds a little more interest to your life. It was born out of Ms. Moeller‚Äôs deep desire to make all the bad luck in her day someone else’s. National Blame Someone Else Day is here!
