It's Friday the 13th, and while superstitions about today abound, for some people it turns out this day which only comes around a few times a year is actually pretty fantastic.

As a born-on-the-13th baby, it's my duty to dispel any myths about this much maligned day. First off, there's a good chance that if you sit down to dinner with 13 people today, one of you won't be dead within a year. Unless it's really, really old relative's birthday, then maybe all bets are off.

Secondly, it's actually not unlucky to be born on the 13th of a month.

Why? Well, because you were born. That's a big deal. It was definitely a big deal for these 13 stars born on Friday the 13th. As it turns out, that was their (and our) lucky day.

Today is a Friday like any other, despite what the calendar may say, but should you go to any sleepaway camps, look out for guys in hockey masks. Just in case.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen turn 26 years old today ... which will totally make anyone who remembers them on Full House for freaking ever ago feel old.

Following their acting debut as infants, the twins appeared together in a variety of TV, film and video projects throughout their child and teenage years.

Through their company Dualstar, the Olsens branched out into fashion and have become some of the wealthiest women in the entertainment industry.

Yesterday's celebrity birthday was followed by an engagement, as supermodel Adriana Lima was proposed to by fair-to-poor NBA player Marko Jaric!

We don't suspect today's birthday girls - The Olsen Twins! - to get engaged to any sports stars in the next 24 hours, although they have dated some.

Anyway. Happy birthday to the former child stars and current train wrecks, who are 22 today. Do us a favor and eat something for a change!

Here's a little gallery of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen pictures our staff put together in celebration of their special day. Click to enlarge them!
