Are you suffering from Triskaidekaphobia, friggatrishtkaidekaphobia, or paraskevidekatriaphobia today, If so you are you are probably not living in Spain or Greece where Tuesday the 13th is sometimes considered a bad luck day not Friday the 13th.
What day of the week must a month begin on for there to be a Friday the 13th in that month?
What is the longest time our calendar can have between Friday the 13ths? This will occur in the 2012/2013 time period.
Must there be at least one Friday the 13th in every year?
This year we will have 3 Friday the 13ths the last one in July, How many will we have in 2013?
Oh if we only had 13 months we could have a 13/13/13 next year and the media could have a field day.
Take a ride in an old elevator car and notice that there is no 13th floor light in elevators in many older hotels and office buildings.
Walk down the hallway of an old hotel and look for any room with a 13 in its number often there will be no rooms with 13 in their number. There may be a 12A or the odd numbered rooms will just skip from 11 to 15.
There have been 12 “Friday the 13th ” films in the series. Think about the possibilities of the 13th “Friday the 13th” Horror Film being released on the Friday the 13th of 2013 what a publicity boon that would be. All the rest of the films incidentally have been released on Friday the 13ths.
Oh if we only had 13 months instead of 12 think of the problem that 13/13/13 might cause.
Have a happy Friggatrishtkaidekaphobia day.
