This LA publicist is a tad bit ashamed to admit to you that she didn’t even realize it was Friday the 13th till about two seconds ago. But I guess that’s what happens when your pr agency is always working hard and busy handling all their wonderful clients! =)
Anywho, as we prepared for our morning news blast meeting, I came across an article about Friday ( now that I know its the 13th I get why there is an article about Friday) and how we might be in for one heck of a year. As I continued reading I learned that 2012 has an overdose of Friday the 13th’s. According to an article in USA Today every year has at least one but never more than three. And 2012 has Today, April 13th, AND July 13th, which means we have defiantly maxed out 2012.
Now is this lucky? Is this unlucky? I say, you yourself has to be the judge of that matter. Historically, Friday the 13th bad luck tradition or “superstition” dates back to the fact that Christ was crucified on a Friday and the Last Supper included 13 men. Historical and religious matters aside, socially now Friday the 13th ranges from super lucky gambling day to watch out for black cats and ladders.
My outlook on this day is well… its just a day. And as long as you remember that, I believe it can be just as fun, lucky, or unlucky as you make it. For me, I was just happy it was Friday!!!
