2022’s Only Friday the 13th materializes – NBC Los Angeles

When a year only includes one Friday the 13th — and many years have two or even three of the terrifying occasions — it can feel a little eerily special.

Many people will celebrate the day in a macabre way, by watching a horror movie or maybe burning off a handful of candy corn, if they still have a bag of candy corn in the cupboard (and it hasn’t expired yet).

But other celebrations sparkle in an eerie existence, right in front of us, and in California, the famous home for horror movies? The feeling of a Friday in May, and the only Friday the 13th in 2022, can take on the proportions of October.

Granted, the big Halloween extravaganzas unfolding in our local theme parks haven’t all revealed their 2022 plans, although we recently learned that Oogie Boogie Bash will return to Disney California Adventure in Anaheim.

That said, you can find fall accents here and there, even on a warm spring day, if you know where to look.

Because Friday, May 13 is also National Apple Pie Day, and the apple is of course one of the sweetest stars of fall, especially when drizzled with caramel.

If you’re looking for a decadent dessert drink inspired by this idea, head to Fat Sal’s, where the temporary Caramel Apple Fat Pie Shake recently made its drizzly debut.

The not-so-terrifying, oh-so-Halloween-y treat, priced at $13.25, will be available in Hollywood and Encino stores through the end of June. But sipping on May 13, National Apple Pie Day?

That feels just right, especially when the weekend heat drops.

Other Friday the 13th charms also enchant us.

SugarMynt Gallery, in South Pasadena, has a new art exhibit inspired by our youngsters’ creepy TV, books and movies, and are you ready for a road trip? The Winchester Mystery House offers Flashlight Tours of the walking mansion in the evening, a tradition every Friday the 13th.

And if you’re looking ahead while you’re busy sewing a fabulous costume to wear later this year?

Tickets are on sale for Midsummer Scream, the massive Halloween convention landing in Long Beach at the end of July.

This is, as mentioned, the only Friday the 13th in 2022, and also the only National Apple Pie Day, and the fact that they are connected on a warm May day feels fresh and terrifying at the same time, like a postcard from autumn, right when we got there. needed one.
