Friday the 13th!

Updated: Apr 6, 2018

Garlic ready – Check.

Black cats not in sight – Check.

No ladders to walk under – Check.


The list can go on for Paraskevidekatriaphobics (those who have a morbid or irrational fear of Friday 13th).


I found the following on the site ThoughtCo:


Ships that set sail on a Friday will have bad luck, as in the tale of H.M.S. Friday. One hundred years ago, the British government sought to quell the longstanding superstition among seamen that setting sail on Fridays was unlucky. A special ship was commissioned and given the name "H.M.S. Friday." They laid her keel on a Friday, launched her on a Friday, selected her crew on a Friday, and hired a man named Jim Friday to be her captain. Finally, it was on a Friday that H.M.S. Friday embarked on her maiden voyage — and was never seen or heard from again.


So... on that note, I hope that you have an enjoyable and 'lucky' day. I'm staying in bed until the 14th!!!
