Halloween Falls on Friday the 13th for First Time in 666 Years-Fiction!

Halloween Falls on Friday the 13th for First Time in 666 Years-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
Halloween will fall on Friday the 13th in 2015 for the first time in 666 years.
The Truth:
Halloween won’t fall on Friday the 13th in 2015, or in any other year.
That’s because Halloween has been held on October 31 ever since the holiday was created in the eighth century. Back then, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as All Saints Day, and the evening before became known as All Hallows’ Eve, and later Halloween.
That rumor that Halloween would fall on Friday the 13th for the first time in 666 years first spread across social media sites in 2014, when Halloween actually fell on a Friday:

These tweets are a joke that aims to “trick” readers into revealing how gullible they by repeating the rumor that Halloween falls on Friday the 13th for the first time in 666 years.
Rest assured that Halloween will fall on October 31 in 2015, and each year after.
