Today Is Not The Only Friday The 13th In 2012

melody

Welcome to the first Friday the 13th of 2012, its not the only one though in 2012.  There is another Friday the 13th in April and July.  After this summer, the next Friday the 13th won’t happen until September of 2013!  So do you feel lucky?

Many Americans are afraid of Friday the 13th.  Approximately 17-21 million fear from the day and the actual term of the phobia is Friggatriskaidekaphobia – maybe I should use that term at the next Smarter Than A Q-Tease Trivia.  (shame-less plug). Have no fear though the maximum times Friday the 13th can appear in a calendar year is three.

We are somewhat superstitious of the number 13.  Most buildings don’t have a 13th floor, airports don’t have a 13th gate, and the economy suffers on the day as well.  Many people won’t fly, invest in stocks or do business as they usually would.  Some economist believe that $800 -$900 million of business is lost on Friday the 13th.

Don’t walk under a ladder or have a black cat cross your path today.  Why not just stay home a watch a few movies. May I recommend ‘Friday the 13th’ from 1980? – A classic!
