Friday the 13th

Didn't realize today was Friday the 13th until I was writing my blog post. Well, I'm not really that superstitious or anything and I believe that you make your own luck. But maybe it isn't a bad idea to stay away from ladders, mirrors, or black cats today. ;p

Anyway, here are some fascinating facts about Friday the 13th (source):

  • In French Lick Springs, Indiana, a law was once passed requiring all black cats to wear bells.
  • Greek philosophers called 13 an 'imperfect' number.
  • Friday was the common day for people to be hanged in the past.
  • Hangmen were once paid thirteen pence halfpenny.
  • Some Texans say never to cut any kind of garment on a Friday because it will not be completed.
  • Many hotels have no room number 13
  • Many buildings do not have a 13th floor.
  • Many airplanes do not have a 13th row.
  • Many ships will not start a voyage on the 13th, particularly, Friday the 13th.

Well, one good thing about Friday the 13th is that it is a FRIDAY! So happy weekend everyone! =)
